Summary
Bud Johnson is an apathetic, beer drinking, lovable loser, who is coasting through a life that is passed him by. His one bright spot in his mundane existence is his precocious, over achieving twelve-year old daughter, Molly. She takes care of them both. She accidentally sets off a chain of events on Election Day, which culminates in the presidential election coming down to one vote, Bud's. Suddenly, Bud becomes the voice for everybody when the world realizes that his vote will be the one that elects the next president. Descending on the unwitting inhabitants of the small town of Texico, New Mexico, politicians wage a war for Bud's vote
