Markos is understandably eager to keep straw polls in the realm of possibility, which is why Al Gore isn't on the current Cattle Call on the Front Page.

But some Kossacks won't even vote unless Gore is on the list.

So, this Diary is to give you an opportunity to vote that way if you want. And I've stuck a couple of other fantasy names on the list, too.

Any of these one-choice-only polls has a problem, however. You can only vote for a single candidate, not put in your second, third, fourth, et cetera choices. Being able to do so, as Brian Olson does at, would certainly give us a better picture of how participating Kossacks feel.

Take the poll.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
