Over-the-road trucker, Lester Moore, leads every poll in the country for the office of President of The United States. The thing is, he isn't running!
If only Les wouldn't have won that laptop computer for being selected his company's 'Driver of the Year', none of this would be happening. Just as soon as a lady friend shows him how to use the contraption, he enters a political survey contest that asks the question: What would be the first thing you'd do if you were elected President? His answer, which mentioned something about an average guy having the job, ends up printed on the front page of 'The National News Daily'. All it took then was a couple of college pranksters setting up a website, Write-In Les Moore for President, and his popularity skyrockets. It was all a big joke.
A divorced, fifty-six year old with health concerns and an IRS problem, Les is not your typical presidential candidate by any stretch. But, people love him and they are logging in to the site by the millions to pledge their support.
The bureaucrats in Washington aren't about to have some truck driver hi-jack the election process and they are willing to do whatever is necessary to avoid it, up to and including, eliminating the problem altogether.
