What's 3 million people?
Can anyone tell me how someone that had almost 5 out of every 10 people vote against him - how that person can say he has a mandate to do as he pleases? Do the wishes of the 49% of the people not count at all?
The President got 3 million votes more than Kerry did - out of 115 million votes cast. That's not insignificant - but it's about the same as the population of Oklahoma. But we get ignored by national politicians all the time.
