Counting votes

This kind of vote-counting is almost by definition bogus since it relies on galloping and blissful voter ignorance of the process of making law. Biden's giving sauce for the goose, since McCain has been using the same technique, but we'd all be better off without this.

Of course, the problem is still that remaining undecided voters are the most dithering, apolitical, and limited in attention, intellect, or interest. They probably don't have the patience for long and revealing anecdotes of McCain's very real opposition (though not in every single instance) to raising the minimum wage.
