I'm still waiting for the day when everyone who really wants to vote third party will actually do it instead of rationalizing a vote for the two party system by believing that third party candidates can't win!


Independent and ad hoc and third party candidates arent new in american politics, and they can have an effect. there are some we'd like to forget. one is the Nader campaign of 2000 -- designed to cripple Gore's chances, and credited with contributing to gore'sloss. one we enjoy remembering is the Perot campaign that probably figured in getting bill clinton elected. old pols around the country can tell stories of "candidates" put in primaries who had the same name as one of the major candidates. voters handed a ballot saw two of the candidates they wanted to vote for.
