    1. Over half a million more people voted for Gore than Bush. Gore won the popularity contest.

    2.In Florida Nader got 97,488 votes. Add these to Gore's total and we come up with 3,009,741 votes. Buchanan got 17,484 votes. Add this to Bush's total and we get 2,930,274 votes. Cut Nader's share in half and add it to Gore's total and we still get 2,960,997 votes. With Bush getting all of Buchanan's votes Gore still takes Florida.

    I guess I should play around with the other states and see what happens. I'm sure Bush played well with all the corn states. Ready to get "Footloose" with our "faith based" initiatives?
