This article is more significant than most people think - Of course - we don't really anticipate a re-count BUT, due to the sinister leftist tactics of the "Chicago Gang" we shouldn't be surprised if it comes to that - SO in the event that it does, a re-count could again be decided by the conservative majority on the Supreme Court - and, if it should come to that, and based on recent history, guess who will come out smelling like a rose?

James Baker: "Not Entirely Unlikely That We Might Have A Recount"
"There are three or four states today, Bret, that require a recount if the result is within a certain number of percentage points. And so it's not in -- not entirely unlikely that we might have a recount in a -- in two or three of those states. And that could then trigger what happened in 2000," former Secretary of State James Baker said about the possibility of a recount.
"I don't expect it to happen. I hope it doesn't happen. It would be better for America's democracy if it doesn't happen. But you have to be prepared for it," Baker said on FOX News' "Special Report."
Five days before the election, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has ruled out trying to work with Mitt Romney should he win next week.
"Mitt Romney's fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his 'severely conservative' agenda is laughable," Mr. Reid said in a statement on Friday, trying to puncture Mr. Romney's closing election argument that he'll be able to deliver on the bipartisanship President Obama promised in 2008 but has struggled to live up to.
Mr. Reid, a Nevada Democrat and a Mormon, like Mr. Romney, has become the Republican presidential nominee's chief critic this campaign, at one point accusing him of failing to pay taxes — a charge that Mr. Romney has refuted.
With Democrats appearing poised to keep control of the Senate, a President Romney would have to be prepared to work with Mr. Reid, who would set the upper chamber's schedule and determine what bills make it to the floor.
Mr. Reid flatly ruled out following Mr. Romney's agenda, saying he and his colleagues have already voted down many of those proposals, including House Republicans' budget, written by Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan.
