can you give an example of your nightmare scenario with a

Schulze(wv), can you use that as a baseline?

I reply:

Someone posted a wv failure-example to EM a while back. I'll try to find 
another example, but I admit that it's easier said than done. The important 
thing is that, as long as there's any chance that voting Nader instead of 
Dean in 1st place will let Cheney win, you can be sure that the progressives 
will mostly vote Dean in 1st place, though they prefer Nader.

I'll start looking for a BeatpathWinner FBC failure example, but I hope 
others will too, because it isn't so easy to find one.
