We hear several opinions from Erwin Chemerinsky, who contested the butterfly ballot on behalf of independent Florida voters; Douglas Kmiec, former counsel to President Reagan; Warren Richey, legal writer for the Christian Science Monitor; David Corn of The Nation; and David Frum, senior fellow at Manhattan Institute, and contributing editor at the conservative Weekly Standard.
