I cant believe no ones mentioned 1988 yet. Bush VS Dukakis. with Dan Quayle  on the Republican ticket too!

come on people!!

True, that one wasn't so great either, but in my opinion, Bush Sr was better than Bush Jr., and Dukakis was no worse than Kerry. And Quayle was no worse than Cheney.

That, and the fact that Lloyd Bentsen was included in that race made it a little better.

Very true. Bentsen would have been a great President. Too bad he wasn't the nominee in 1988.

Much agreed. How he got placed under a loser like Dukakis is beyond me. I met Lloyd Bentsen, great guy...far more presidential than that stoic nobody.

I think the elections between 1876 and 1896 were really bad because both parties had Big Business-platforms. No real choice for workers and farmers.

Here is my list of bad elections:

1932
1936
1940
1944
1964
1976
1980
1984
1988
2000

With the exception of maybe 1988 and 1944 because of good VPs, I think 2004 was better than all of those.
