I admit that I'm too cheap and too disinterested in TV in general to have HBO, so I missed Recount (although I'm sure I'll catch up on it when it comes on DVD), but Digby gives her impression of that nervewracking time that inspired the movie. There's one particular passage at the end that all Democrats must heed:

It's pretty to think that this is all ancient history and we can move on. Maybe we can. But just this week, Tim Griffin was hired to run the RNCs Obama opposition research team. And the voter fraud apparatus that Rove and others before him have built, which includes Republican lawyers like Carvin and Griffin, is still up and running. Maybe they are spent and useless now. I hope so.

For those interested in discussing election fraud further, we will be hosting author Mark Crispin Miller on Friday, May 30th for a live chat on his new book, Loser Take All: Election Fraud and The Subversion of Democracy, 2000 - 2008, starting at 11:00 am Pacific/2:00 pm Eastern. It should be an interesting discussion.
