Possible bragging rights for Washington over Idaho: We have more presidential candidates on our ballot than you have.

Possible bragging rights for Idaho over Washington: We have fewer presidential candidates hardly anyone's  ever heard of on our ballot than you.

As colleague Betsy Russell reports over on Eye on Boise, the Idaho presidential ballot is set: 
Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, of course, plus Libertarian Gary Johnson, Constitution Party's Virgil Goode and independents Rocky Anderson and Jill Stein.

Washington's ballot, which was set about a month ago lists all six, although it identifies Anderson as being with the Justice Party and Stein with Green Party. Washington also has Peta Lindsay of the Socialism and Liberation Party and James Harris of the Socialist Workers Party.  For more on the third party candidates on the Washington ballot, click here.
