This writer explains why, if given the chance to vote, he would have definitely cast a vote for George W. Bush.

From the Paper:

"On the 7th of November, for only the 54th time in its history, the United States of America chose a President and a Vice-President by election. The finalists, for this prize of what has become the most powerful political office on the globe, is determined by primary elections. The process, by which the candidates in the General Presidential Election will be nominated, largely determines the answer to this question.
"Despite the habit of the mainstream news media of treating the nomination process as a series of blockbuster heavyweight bouts with names such as "Super Tuesday", the object of the game of winning the nomination in one of the two major parties is that of collecting the pledges from a majority of the delegates to the parties' National Conventions held during the summer before the General Election. There are only three methods used at present to allocate delegates to presidential contenders: the "Caucus/Convention", what is currently referred to as the "Presidential Primary" or some combination of the two."
