article description
Which of the two major presidential candidates will be elected on the first "2's Day" in November of the year 2000, and take office on the 20th day of the following year? Linguistically and numerically, Bush seems to have a definite edge. His last name begins with B, the second letter of the alphabet, and if elected he would be the second George Bush to serve.
