LOU DOBBS (HOST): I assume that as Secretary of State, you've got some people very carefully watching all of this transpire, particularly the decision about which votes will be permitted. That process, some have said that you should step aside, as overseeing the process as Secretary of State.

I have to tell you straight up, I'm delighted to see a Republican official who doesn't instantly bow to a Democratic demand, or -- or another Republican demand, in some cases, and recuse himself. Either you have integrity, and that is the test, or you don't.
