Or your first vote for Premiere or Prime Minister, for that matter - my question is, who was the first head of state you voted for?

My first was John Anderson, the Independent candidate for President in 1980.

No, I definitely did NOT vote for Calvin Coolidge, and anybody who passes that ugly rumor is going to get hit! Evil or Very Mad I do believe that my first Presidential vote was for Kennedy, in 1960.

My first presidential vote was in Arizona in 1968 and I voted for HHH, Hubert H. Humphrey. I was 22, the voting age was 21 at that time. My choices were, Richard Nixon, George Wallace of Humphrey.

Oh, and i met Hubert H in '68, i was pickin' up some extra cash in the University Union, and they had us settin' up tables for the Dem's dinner to be held there that evening. HHH walked in and shook everyone's hand. Old HHH asked me who i would vote for, and i replied: "I suppose i'm expected to say that i'm gonna vote for you, right?" He just laughed and asked if i was gonna vote for Nixon. I told him no, and pointed out that i was not yet 21, and couldn't vote for anyone--although i was fairly certainly i'd be allowed to die in far off lands . . . he grew very serious and said that was an issue that disturbed him . . . then he put on the big smile, and went to shake the hand of someone obviously old enough to vote for him . . .

Setanta I saw him once to, not long before he died in D.C. I was heading down Constitution going East from capitol hill in my little ole poweder blue VW bug. I looked into the rear view mirror and there he was sitting up fron with his driver I smiled and waived, he simled and waved back, great smile. I got so shook I turned left on a red light, hehe. The last image of him I saw looked similar to this :0

Jespah my band played a fund raiser for John Anderson in Raleigh.

I figured any candidate who would contact an all out metal band to play a gig for him was okay.

He lost of course.
