I don't think it matters. The election result were in full force until
nullified and that did not happen until after the agreement. The new
president, if it changes, would be obligated to honor the agreement.

Interesting side light. It has been reported that the DNC made contributions
to Carey's election canpaign. I don't know what the legalities are but if I
were a DNC contributor I would be annoyed. On the other hand if I were a DNC
contributor my thinking would be equally warped so maybe I wouldn't.
