Oh, I like this one! I really like this one.

My thoughts were more practical though: The popular vote is split in Florida, and each state is allowed to distribute their Electoral votes any way they want (look at Maine if you don't believe me), so Florida should just split the 25 electoral votes: 12 for Gore, 12 for Bush. And leave the last one either uncast, or give it to Nader or something.
:-)

Ok, I'm kidding. It is a bit late for Florida to change their mind on how to distribute electoral votes. Imagine the chaos if 47 other states all decide to switch from an all or nothing approach to a by county approach after the election. yuck. Then again, members of the Electoral college really can vote however they please...
