The idea is democracy at it's best, and the argument that we get to vote on who the power brokers decide is valid.. only problem is this could (would) divide the vote..

going all "tin foil" here.. but who would have the most to gain by a divided ticket.. duh.. Them cwazy mixed up dems,..

Serious.. Nader cost Gore (to all of our relief) the white house.. All this talk of a separate (any) party.. could very well siphon off enough votes that the O stays as POTUS..

Pretty easy to see who would lose votes, and it wouldn't be O.. the Donald, Johnson, and now this.. One of the problems were already facing is lack of a candidate that has united the party, and im afraid we need every vote we can get to win next year..

If by any chance a liberal ran as well it would be great.. I'd love to see Nader (or some other goof) run and take votes away from O.. Afraid that this reaches those who would otherwise vote R.

Very interesting

and very dangerous given the current administration.
WE need all our eggs in one basket this go-round.
I do like the idea but sure have some questions as to who is really behind it.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

on this and like Vaq, I like the concept and as Greg said, it would split the vote more which is not good but there seems to be some pretty dubious shit going on, like Zero transparency for who donated what etc. here is the article.

like to see a recall vote to remove the affirmative action clown from the White House. I'd like to see a democrat run for office who could win on his own merits. I'd like to see a lot of things but being realistic I know it'll never come to pass.
