Kuhnel Says Recount Likely
So Roh Kuhnel says he's seriously thinking about asking for a recount? It wouldn't bother me if they did an automatic recount, as a matter of routine, when races are as close as the one between Ron Kuhnel and Jeff Leonard.
One problem with recounts, seems to me, is the numbers always seem to change every time they recount. The first Bush/ Gore election comes to mind. When do you finally say Enough?
It might be just me, but I think Kuhnel looks a lot more like someone with an agenda that 's determined to win- no matter what- by asking for a recount. It kind of cheapens his image as I see it.
Hey, with races this close a recount might go either way. Heck, with races this close the results could certainly have been different if the election were held a day earlier or later.
If it was me, I don't think I'd go for the recount, but I'm sure it's not just him. He's probably got a lot of people desperate for him to win, egging him on.
