what if terrorists attacked right before the November election...

So, everyone’s freaking out about this idea that the November election might be postponed in case of terrorist attack. Now, regardless of whether you think there is danger of a terrorist attack, let’s say that the people in charge believe there is such a danger. Wouldn’t it make sense to plan for that possibility? I mean, if there had been a national election scheduled for September 11, 2001, would anyone argue that said election should have gone on as planned rather than being postponed a few weeks?
