in reply to For whom would you vote, if you were an American?

To be honest, I'd rather vote for a third party candidate (Peroutka), but given that voting for a third party just gives the opposite main party a vote, I'm voting for Bush. I think Dad voted Peroutka, and my three oldest siblings voted Bush. Mom isn't a registered voter (too busy to risk jury duty atm), and my other five siblings aren't old enough to vote yet.

It's really too bad you can't rank all the candidates in order of preference. The current system is hopeless for third party candidates.
