This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidential Elections - Election of 2000 & 2004 - Bush. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Bush and incumbent Vice President Dick Cheney were re-nominated by their party with little difficulty. Howard Dean was initially the front runner for the Democratic Party's nomination, but Kerry won nearly all of 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.
In this historic election, Barack Obama became the first African-American to become president and first with a Muslim heritage. With the Obama/Biden win, Biden became the first-ever Roman Catholic vice president. Had the McCain/Palin ticket won, John McCain would have been the oldest president in history, and Sarah Palin would have been the first woman vice president.
Hillary Clinton sought the Democratic nomination. She was the first woman to be an American presidential candidate in every primary and caucus in every state.
Sarah Palin became the first woman to appear on a Republican presidential ticket, and the second woman overall to appear on a major party's presidential ticket.
The presentation covers the following:
ELECTION OF 2004
Bush Narrow Victory
ELECTION OF 2008
