MyDD May 2006 Straw Poll: Least Favorite in 2008

After seeing the preliminary results in the May / June Dailykos straw polls, I have decided to change things a bit for the MyDD straw poll. Considering that Feingold has a massive, and virtually unchanged, lead in the regular Dailykos poll, and that Gore has an even larger lead in the Fantasy poll, I have decided that instead of asking people to rank their favorite choices for 2008, I will instead ask you to rank your least favorite choices for 2008. It is the only way I can imagine adding any spice to this poll.
So, go vote in the poll, but make sure you rank the candidates from your least favorite to your favorite, rather than the other way around. If candidate A is your least favorite option, place him or her at the top of your list. Place your second least candidate next, your third least favorite candidate third, your fourth least candidate fourth, etc.
I don't want to give off too much negative energy here, but at least this should produce some more interesting results. Vote away. Keep it civil in the comments. Don't repeat any Republican talking points.
Update: I just got some anonymous feedback on the poll demanding that I include Gore because people will still supporting him for Peesident as his movie comes out. Talk about not reading the instructions, or even the title of the poll. Maybe I shouldn't have bothered.
