Moore, who won the Best Documentary OSCAR at this year's (03) ACADEMY AWARDS for his anti-gun film Bowling For Columbine, threw his backing behind left-wing candidate RALPH NADER in the 2000 elections - but Cusack believes that he should have joined him in tactical support of Democratic candidate Al Gore instead - to ensure REPUBLICAN GEORGE W BUSH was beaten.
Cusack explains, "He lost a lot of credibility when he went and campaigned for Ralph Nader because he was dead wrong when it counted.
"I'm not a huge fan of the Democratic party, but I knew there was a huge difference between then and the Bush crowd. Don't tell me Al Gore would have handed out the contract to rebuild Iraq before he'd given the order to bomb it."09/06/2003 17:29
