If they both claimed that the sun rises in the east, I’d still want independent verification. How many more years until November?

I would be interested to find if another publication indicates how the 3rd party and independent candidates answer these questions as well.

McC/Palin and Obama/Biden are wearing on the nerves.

Ivan – Unfortunately, the political system in this country is not set up to allow third-party candidates to play any role but spoiler. The idea that one should vote one’s conscience is hooey: that vote does not *effect* one’s conscience, often quite the opposite, if it has any effect at all. It’s rather like taking an SAT or the like and knowing that the best answer is a mixture of “A” and “B”: making your own circle in between the two just plain isn’t legible in the system which reads the test results. (This is less true at local levels…but the notion that a party can gain anything by running someone for president is mythical at best.)
