Inside Story US 2012 - The other parties - excluded but not silenced

By davidswanson - Posted on 24 October 2012


Your informed and analytical views on this 3rd-parties presidential campaign candidates debate (appellation?) is good and is useful to me.  There's only one thing I didn't like about it and it's that David should've been given more time to express himself or his views.  It's better than nothing, but a longer interview would've been better.  I understand that it was necessary for AlJazeera to replay some parts of the video for the whole debate, so this isn't the problem, which is that the interview with David should've been longer than it was.

Out of the four 3rd-party candidates, I would have to choose between Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson. It would be great if either of them won two weeks from now, but as David says, it isn't going to happen this year or even in a few years from now.  And I think that I'd prefer Anderson for President, because Stein seems too lady-like, soft, gentle, .... I'm imagining her more in a position like, and only perhaps, VP, Sec. of State, Sec. of Health, if the US has one, ....  But maybe she's "tough" enough to be President in the ruthless, rogue world of DC.
