First, isn't that better for a judge to decide?

Second...in every state it IS required that on the ballot, the two major
parties go first, then the other candidates in order of size. In the Florida
case, Buchanan was above Gore in many cases, so anybody looking for the number
2 slot would punch Buchanan, who HIMSELF said he didn't think most of those
voters in that area were voting for him.
