To Senator Barbara Boxer and Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the first recipients of the award I just created, the Hero of Democracy, for challenging the Ohio electors and forcing Congress to debate the many problems voters had on Election Day. It took great courage to do what they did, knowing that it wouldn't change the results. I can only hope that it will lead to electoral reform.

Read the text of Tubbs Jones' speech here.

On the other hand, a great big raspberry for John Kerry, for not having the cojones to stand up for himself and the voters, while asking supporters to make sure every vote gets counted. I don't know how Kerry expects us to back him again, if he can't stick his neck out when it counts.
