    Kerry, but it was really more that I was voting against GWB. I didn't particularly like Kerry, I just hated Bush infinitely more.

    Dole. And thinking back on that election, it was a lot like Obama/McCain. Clinton and Obama both showed respect to their elderly, military veteran opponents and evinced a sort of amused tolerance. Comfortable victories for both Democrats.

    Bob Dole I think. He won in a landslide.

    ^^Oh man, the mention of Bob Dole brings back so many good SNL memories from that election. Hilarious!

    (And I'm Canadian so I can't contribute anything to the first Presidential vote thing. But my first vote in a Canadian federal election was for Audrey McLaughlin in 1988).

    Obama! I was old enough to vote in 2004, but regrettably didn't care about politics at the time.
