Will wonders never cease?

While states such as New York are increasing the risk of such fraud, a half-dozen states have recently adopted laws requiring voters to offer proof of identity or citizenship before casting a ballot. A federal commission, co-chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker, gave such laws a big boost in 2005 when it called for a nationwide policy requiring a photo ID before voting.

From the November 2, 2007

Amazing! Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks! The former President that never met a dictator he didn't like agrees that it is a good idea to require a photo ID for voting. I guess it is true, even a broken clock is right twice a day! The integrity of the voting process is paramount for a democracy. If you can not trust the voting booth, you can not trust the outcome. If you can not trust the outcome, you can not trust the government. It seems we know where the former president stands and it seems we also know where Senator Clinton stands as well.

Despite her muddled comments this week, there's no doubt where Mrs. Clinton stands on ballot integrity. She opposes photo ID laws, even though they enjoy over 80% support in the polls. She has also introduced a bill to force every state to offer no-excuse absentee voting as well as Election Day registration--easy avenues for election chicanery. The bill requires that every state restore voting rights to all criminals who have completed their prison terms, parole or probation.
