Did Doug Hoffman conceded too soon?

I’m certainly not a fan of taking election counts to the courts, but maybe Doug Hoffman should have let all of the votes be counted before conceding.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quickly got Bill Owens (D- N.Y.) down to Washington D.C. and swore him in within a few days so he could break his first campaign promise and vote to include a public option for health care. To be fair, Owens was against the public option early in the campaign, only to quietly reverse his opinion in the last few days.

Anyway… back to the story.

During the past week, they have actually taken the time to count the votes and it seems like the results were a bit closer than expected. The current vote tally has Owens up by 3,000, but there are 10,000 absentee ballots yet to be counted.

Hat tip to Geraghty at the NRO Campaign Spot.

Although an interesting story, my gut is telling me the results will not change.
