"Mandate", my scaly tail!

Though Bush won more votes -- 59.2 million -- than any presidential candidate in U.S. history, Kerry's vote total -- 55.7 million -- was still greater than any U.S. presidential candidate in history prior to 2004. That means more Americans cast their vote against Bush than against any other presidential candidate in U.S. history.

Keep that in mind when someone crows about how Bush has a "mandate" because more people voted for him than any other President in history. More people voted AGAINST him than for any other President in history, too.
