New Rove tactic?

Andrew Samwick speculates:
I conjecture that in future elections in which the electoral college outcome is projected to be close, candidates will independently seek a high popular vote count--even in states not perceived to be battleground states--to set themselves up in a favorable position to pursue or defend lawsuits. It may be that the Bush-Cheney campaign did exactly that in 2004, so quietly that no one really noticed until Tuesday night.
This would be an amazing foresight on the part of Karl Rove.
