Bush does not exprect to be a write-in candidate in Iraq, though he might consider the taking on the job if chosen..

WASHINGTON Jan 12, 2005 — The White House sought Wednesday to lower expectations for Iraq's elections, suggesting that there could be little or no voting in the most unstable provinces and that polling is likely to be disrupted in places by violence.

"The election is not going to be perfect," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said

McClellan said coalition forces and the Iraqi government are "working to address those ongoing security challenges." We want to make sure that there's as broad a participation as possible in those elections," he said.

One idea being considered is to let people who are prevented from voting by violence to vote later.
