STERLING, Ill., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- May the best candidate win, but
when it comes to the best presidential hair, George W. Bush has America's

best hair, Wahl's survey found that the majority of Americans overwhelmingly
voted for Bush's hair over Kerry's (Bush -- 51 percent; Kerry -- 30 percent;
neither -- 10 percent; don't know -- 9 percent.)
"Wahl isn't choosing sides politically, but when it comes to what we know
