Election overseers

Boy, is this a good idea! Democrats.com is promoting a petition to have U.N. overseers monitor the upcoming election. The peitition mentions the problems of touchscreen voting machines, the "felon" purge, discrimination against minorities, and biased media coverage.

I rarely ask folks to sign peitions, but this one is a superb idea. Even if U.N. monitors do not insure a clean election, their observations -- if negative -- will have a tremendous effect on world opinion.

Thirteen members of Congress are already on board.
