Since 2000, Jon Stewart's Indecision election segment has been a fixture of the show's political coverage. The show squeezed some bonus joke opportunities that year -- it being the Bush/Gore election and all. This year, as the Republicans hesitate to raise their hands and declare candidacy, it looks like the segment's name might prove relevant once again.
