9. Truly, that's pathetic.
some were so angered by the vice president's atrocious record of selling out working families, environmentalists and farmers that they wanted to give him the double-whammy of taking a vote from him and giving it to Bush

Oh yeah, that makes a LOT of sense. Someone who's liberal enough to be upset with Gore on those issues figures they'll "show" him by voting for Bush - who is even WORSE on those issues.

That kind of thinking is more typical of unrepentant Nader voters - perhaps you've heard the old phrase, "cutting off your nose to spite your face"?
