Bush and Cheney have officially cast their vote for McCain.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Bush has cast his ballot in the 2008 election, spokeswoman Dana Perino said Friday.

He voted for John McCain, "of course," she said.

Laura Bush, who also cast her ballot Friday, also voted for McCain, her spokeswoman suggested.

"I think Mrs. Bush has been pretty clear that John McCain and Sarah Palin have her vote," said press secretary Sally McDonough.

Vice-President Dick Cheney also voted for McCain, his press secretary said Friday. Cheney mailed his absentee ballot to his home state of Wyoming on October 8.

Bush and his wife's "ballots will be mailed back to Texas today," Perino said. The Bushes "plan to be here at the White House on election night."

    Even Bush voted eraly.

    With all the voting problems, you cant risk waiting for Nov 4th. Those that vote earily get through the issues frist, and get their vote counted.

    Those that wait, are taking a chance.

    Dont be STUPID, Vote early.

    Even Bush is smart enough for that one.

    Of course they will vote for him. If they voted for Obama (which is who I think they really want to vote for) they would be traitors. "Hi ho, Silver"

    Did anyone expect them to vote for Obama? LOL
    Anyway, that John McCain is now speaking out about President Bush is laughable.... he said he dosen't like the big spending, the way the war was handled, etc., and I ask McCain, why did you wait so long to speak out, and you keep saying you can win the wars and fix the economy then I ask why don't you? What are you waiting for??????

    I keep seeing on various "tickers" a statement that liberal women would have aborted their babies if discovered that there was a handicap with their unborn child – Not True! this type of decision does not take on a Republican or Democrat or Independent persona – please quit pushing that "FEAR" button. Women of all walks of life make choices and they are not always easy ones – one way or another – please get out of other peoples business once and for all.
