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...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
