If Bush truly trusts people, not gov't, than he should be all for a hand count where the will of the people can be determined. If the ballot was faulty, do not disenfranchise the voters. If I ever gave a scantron (computer graded) test to my students (which I don't, my tests are all short answer and essay,much to my students chagrin) and the machine kicked out a test as unreadable, I would then grade the test by hand. I wouldn't assign the student a zero, I wouldn't ask all of the students to take the test again.
Hey DougR I have an idea :-) how 'bout splitting Florida's electoral vote? 12.5 each...whadaya think? Should we call both campaigns?
