    Look, if it will make you happy, I'll agree for the sake of argument that everyone who voted for Nader would have voted for Gore if Nader hadn't been a candidate - thus putting Gore over the top.

    Will you agree in turn that the people who voted for Nader did so because they wanted to - for whatever foolish or contemptible reason, as you see it? I hope so.

    Then what you're saying amounts to: the Nader voters shouldn't have been allowed to vote for him - even if only by Nader himself, by the act of ending his candidacy.

    Which begs the question: Who the hell are you to say that 97,000 Floridians should not have been allowed to vote for who they wanted?

      If ONE OF EVERY HUNDRED Nader voters in Florida had taken their heads out of their pristine-with-purity asses and voted for Gore, the last ten years would have been very, very different.
