Anyone seen the 1999 movie "Election"?
It's really funny and sorta similar to the real thing. If you havent seen it, rent it.
Reese Witherspoon's character is sorta like Al Gore, an overacheiving know-it-all with a unlikable personality.
Chris Klein's character is like Dubya, a not too bright popular jock who likes to party but is a terrible public speaker.
Matthew Broderick's character is like Katherine Harris. An authority figure who wants to control the outcome of the election for his own personal reasons.
Here's a quote from Jessica Campbell's character, who is like Ralph Nader:
Who cares about this stupid election? We all know it doesn't matter who gets elected president of Millard. You think it's going to change anything around here, make one single person happier or smarter or nicer? The only person it matters to is the one who gets elected. The same pathetic charade happens every year, and everyone makes the same pathetic promises just so they can put it on their transcripts to get into college. So vote for me, because I don't even want to go to college, and I don't care, and as president I won't do anything. The only promise I make is that if elected I will immediately dismantle the student government, so that none of us will ever have to sit through one of these stupid assemblies again!
