In the US, new presidents are elected in November, and sworn in and take office in January. In other words, a U2 album and bye-bye G.W. Bush.

1) A new album

2) Confirmation that Kerry won't be our next president (i.e. - breathe a heavy sigh of relief!)

Sorry, but this was a one-sided thread and needs more diversity of opinion...

Nothing is confirmed for U.S presidents...don't start pushing your politics on the rest of us, please.

If the elcetion doesn't go the way I hope it does, at least I'll have the new album to console me. But I think it will.

surely the Americans wouldn't be stupid enough to vote in Dubya for a second term...assuming he actually won the last election, that is

i'm hoping the many americans among us were far too intelligent and sensible to have voted for him last time round...

Look, I understand you don't like Bush, I don't favor the man too highly myself, but that doesn't mean you should insult people because they voted for him. Others are free to have different views than you, and it doesn't make them stupid to do so.

I hope U2 has something to say this fall about the election. Larry was at one of the protests against the invasion of Iraq.

November shall be awesome;

1. U2 album.
2. I graduate high school.

Maybe I won't be blasting Beautiful Day on 19 November ...?

On the politics side, I'm glad I won't be able to vote until January 2005 (that's when I turn eighteen). If I lived in the USA, I wouldn't have a clue who to vote for - Bush isn't the brightest bulb in the ceiling but Kerry needs to learn to keep singing the same tune - and here in Australia, while our election date hasn't been announced, it will be this year. I've lost most of my support for John Howard, but I wouldn't trust Mark Latham to run a newsagent, let alone a country. What's particularly fun is that I plan on going into political journalism.

In the US, I don't like Kerry that much but he is the lesser of 2 evils. Bush is an utter moron, and not just because of the war on terror. His rejection of the Kyoto Treaty was just as bad...I could go on but never mind.

In the UK I should be old enough to vote when the general election comes round, I would vote Green but that's throwing my vote away basically...i'll probably vote for whoever's most likely to get Ian Taylor out of our constituency seat, which is probably the Lib Dems.

I guess this turned into a political thread......

No one realizes that Bush has gone through a lot. Just coming into office, he gets hit with 9/11, which was left over fromthe lack of attention from Clinton. 9/11 screwed up the economy and our safety and so they look at Bush and say he's a horrible President, Bullcrap! Vote Bush '04!

Evolution Monkey: I think and hope U2 will have something to say come November elections, unless Bono will want to protect his social/AIDS/Africa work from any "surprises" from the US administration.

Definitely, Bush should leave.
Kyoto, International court for crimes, the Iraq and Afghanistan adventures, the record deficit he managed to get compared to Clinton's record achievements, the fake arguments he used for Iraq (even the 9/11 comission says there is no proof for Iraq connection to 9/11 - yet many Americans still believe Iraq is a vengeance for that), the incredibly bad US relations with other countries and "irrelevant" UN, the decline of human rights in America and the way he fights this war (Guantanamo)...interesting how conservatives were all over Clinton for years yet they get upset at the slighest criticism of Bush.
The last straw for me was using 9/11 in his re-election campaign, Tasteless and pretty bold, considering (like Clark said so well) he/adminstration FAILED on that day. And of course the Iraqi prisoner scandal.

I really fear nothing good can come out of another 4 years with Bush in charge.
