The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney

Will Gregoire's Behavior Backfire?

Christine Gregoire is demanding that Washington State Governor-Elect Dino Rossi concede the election if the third count goes her way. Essentially, she wants him to concede an election she is attempting to steal through fraudulent means. Luckily I don't think the Republicans are going to back down.

This kind of tactic might help her in a courtroom but in the court of public opinion it has great potential to backfire. Already, polls don't seem to be going her way, but that hasn't slowed her down one bit. Perhaps this is why the race was so close in the first place: normally the Democrat is a shoo-in but even some Kerry voters had reservations about her and selected Rossi on election day.
