TIME Magazine piece and more at read more

TIME Magazine has finally awakened to the fact that third party candidates exist. And, their article even has a few good points of explaining how powerful third parties can be, and how useful they can be. But, besides that, they mostly want to critique Barr and Nader as spoilers. And, they only briefly mention Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney. Still, it is something.

(excerpt from) TIME
Could Third Party Candidates Be Spoilers This Time?

Given the current political environment, third parties really should have had a better year. After all, many of the things Americans find most objectionable about the last eight years, from the first authorization to go to war in Iraq to the $700 billion Wall Street bailout, are byproducts of the two party system. To third parties, bi-partisanship looks a lot like collusion. And certainly on at least a few key issues, from immigration reform to support for Israel, the two candidates’ positions are not that dissimilar.

Drake’s Goldford says that third parties have gotten more than 5% nationwide in only 13 presidential elections since 1832. But their value is real, in as much as they often channel some genuine discontent that the major parties then end up having to address. “Third parties are like that carbon monoxide detector in the hallway,” he says. “They start beeping because there’s something going on that the major parties didn’t notice.”

Cynthia McKinney’s big mention in TIME:

Still, it doesn’t take a broad national showing for Barr, Nader, Chuck Baldwin (the Constitution Party candidate whom Paul eventually endorsed), or Cynthia McKinney (the Green Party candidate), to have an effect on the election.
