You gotta love Nader
Fla. Supreme Court Puts Nader on Ballot
By JACKIE HALLIFAX, Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida Supreme Court (news - web sites) ruled 6-1 Friday that Ralph Nader (news - web sites) can be on the state's November ballot as the Reform Party presidential candidate.
The court's ruling met a Saturday deadline for mailing 25,000 ballots to overseas voters, most of them military personnel.
As the Green Party candidate in 2000, Nader attracted 97,000 Florida votes. Most Democrats and many Republicans agree that those votes cost Democrat Al Gore (news - web sites) the presidency.
President Bush (news - web sites) won the state by 537 votes after three weeks of recounts and legal fighting — much of it before Florida's high court.
This year, Nader had been on and off Florida's ballot several times over the last two weeks as lawsuits filed by the Florida Democratic Party and several individual voters challenged his certification as the Reform Party candidate.

If you look up the phrase 'beating a dead horse' in the encyclopedia you will see a full color picture of Ralph Nader.
