The part that I liked is this:

"The push comes more than seven years after problems with overseas military voting set off an uproar in President Bush's narrow 2000 victory. In Florida, where Bush squeaked out a 537-vote victory that gave him the presidency, questions were raised about several thousand overseas military votes that came in after deadlines and were counted in some districts but not counted in others."

Everyone was up in arms about Republicans not counting votes, but how about this little tidbit of info? No one seems to want to remember that Democrats weren't in a big hurry to count votes of troops, since they were under the assumption that most were Republicans.

I wouldn't bet on the troops voting Republican. A lot of them may want to come home. I'm voting Democratic, but I still think email voting is a great idea if it can be done efficiently. Our service men and women deserve that much.
