    Do you regret your "vote"?

    Are you satisfied with, do you regret or have you no opinion regarding your (American or otherwise) choice in the 2000 U. S. presidential election?

    That's why I ask your "choice" over "vote."

    Yeah, I didn't take the time to choose since my choice wouldn't matter anyway.

    this could take a while...

    I just find it funny on how nobody regrets their vote... Man I guess we are amidst people who dont make any mistakes, ever.

    Or perhaps with only 3 choices, there's not a lot of room for a problem.

    People who voted for Nader and Gore are going to believe the grass would have been greener with their respective candidate. There's two down.

    People who voted for Bush are the only ones who have a chance of being unhappy about their choice (fantasies of how gore and nader would have done everything right, that bush had done wrong keep the opposing voters' hopes alive). You'll then notice that Bush is the only option up there that has anything but being fully happy about the choice checked.

    My vote in the poll was "undecided, voted for Bush." I'm not a big fan of Bush, but I certainly wasn't going to vote for 'Hi, I'm Al Gore....You are hearing me talk.'

    I find myself in a similar situation now. If the Democrats could find a decent candidate (does one exist?), I might vote for him.

    They've got a decent candidate. Too bad it's not Howard Dean. Man I love that "Yeaaahhhh!" but you would hate him, Russ-- he ensured that 100% of little kids have health care. Even black kids.
