Both the 2000 and 2004 Presidential Elections were razor tight as George Bush defeated incumbent Vice President Al Gore. At the end of the evening there was no clear winner since it was impossible to call “Florida” for either candidate. This indecision called for a voter recount in key southern, predominate Democratic counties in the state.
The matter was referred to the United States Supreme Court who “stayed” the vote count and ruled in a Landmark Case in favor of George Bush. The election created national TV coverage and debate from “all sides” as Florida’s election officials became famous for counting the “hanging chads” and “butterfly ballots” left by the voting machine to determine to either count or discount the vote in question.
Bush and incumbent Vice President Dick Cheney were re-nominated by their party with little difficulty in 2004. Howard Dean was initially the front runner for the Democratic Party's nomination, but Senator John Kerry won nearly all the primaries and caucuses.
Howard Dean was the expected Democratic candidate but lost support during the primaries. There was speculation that he sealed his fate when he let out a deep, guttural yell in front of a rally of supporters, which became known as the “I Have a Scream” speech, because it was delivered on Martin Luther King Day. Kerry chose Senator John Edwards of NC, who had himself sought that party's 2004 presidential nomination, to be his running mate.
There was a huge voter turnout once again. Bush won again in 2004, this time narrowly defeating Senator John Kerry.
