Postponing the Elections

This is the nightmare scenario I fear the most: the wingnuts being able to make a decision about the election in the event of a terrorist attack. Digby makes a lot of sense to me in this post:

"...why would there be any need to do this? We lived under the threat of nuclear war for decades --- real weapons of mass destruction pointed at all of our major cities --- and nobody ever contemplated suspending elections and devised no plans to do so. We have held elections during every war, including the civil war, and didn't contemplate suspending them in case of an attack."
