Mine came out pretty similar to yours, but with Fred at #2 and Tancredo at #1. Maybe I should try to find out who the hell Tancredo is.

Try as you might, he'll never win. I'd love to see what subtle differences resulted in the difference.

Evidently we're pretty close. No wonder you read this shit! heh
