    Only the man that has a chance to win that is why I don't vote for a third party. Bush was the better man vs Gore and Kerry, and McCain was the better man vs. Obama

    So you like the Bush results after his 8 years in office?

    BTW Gore won the popular vote.

    What does that have to do with the election? Bush had a lot of help in 2007-2008 with a Democrat Controlled Congress of which Obama was part.

    BTW I am sure you were forced to take civics in school and thus learned that popular vote doesn't elect the President.

    I'm not going to vote for who I feel has a better chance of winning if that candidate is not the best alternative for me. That's all.

    And at this point, I don't know if Bush was better than Gore. I may be saying right now with Gore what I say with Clinton. "Sure I hated him at the time, and thought he was the worst President in my life; but now he doesn't seem that bad".

    Again, you miss the point, I vote the better man of the two IMO not the man I think is going to win. I would never waste my vote on a third party candidate who is nothing more than a spoiler.

    I will if that candidate better echos my own political platform than the two front runners. It's the only way to make the system work right.

    that would be two years not one. Then of course there was Democrat control of the Senate in 2001 and all of 2002. Interesting how you ignore that reality
