What is the deciding factor for you if we all know you voted for W in 2000/04??? He was a drunk - -showing his weaknesses to control himself, to be moderate and to diplomatically deal with himself. Lacking those (basic leadership) characteristics has shown deadly for us and World for 7 years...
WHat did W show that attracted your vote to him? Or was the other one just too bad? If second, why didn't you skip voting?
