US looks set for a sequel to the 2000 vote debacle

The Democratic and Republican parties have warned that it could take weeks to decide the Nov. 2 election and have hired rival armies of attorneys and observers for the battle.

Kerry said on Sunday that he had put together a legal “dream team” to protect voter rights.
