A diary writer at RedState.org makes the case that Libertarian Gary Johnson is a legitimate third party candidate for President in 2012 and compares his prospects to Ralph Nader’s in 2000.

The American Prospect’s Harold Meyerson is not a big fan of adding more choices to our presidential races. He does a number on American$elect in this op-ed piece and touches on a question we have been thinking about for a couple of months: is American$elect actually paving the way for New York mayor Michael Bloomberg to run as a late-entry, Perot-like independent candidate for President? Or how about retiring Republican Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine?
