From Yahoo News:

Australian Prime Minister John Howard said Tuesday he hopes George W. Bush wins a second term in office, and praised the U.S. president for his “great leadership to the world in the fight against terrorism.” Howard, whose conservative government recently won a fourth term in office, is a key regional ally of Washington and contributed 2,000 troops to the invasion of Iraq last year. “I wish him (Bush) well and I hope he gets re-elected,” Howard told reporters in Jakarta after meeting with President-elect Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.[…] Australia lost 88 citizens in the Bali bombings in 2002, and last month Islamic militants attacked the country’s embassy in Jakarta, killing nine people, including one suicide bomber. Since the attacks, Howard’s anti-terror rhetoric has mirrored that of Bush, and he has spoken of the need for pre-emptive strikes against suspected militants outside of Australia.

At least Kerry has Arafat, Chirac, and Saddam’s support.
