interesting. It would certainly create a better election in 2012 imo.
The issue with our system right now is that it is virtually impossible to elect an independent/3rd party candidate to national office. I think Vermont has an independent congressman, but other than that I can’t really think of anyone who has a seat in the Capitol, let alone the White House, who was not part of the two party system in recent years.
Given the popularity of the Occupy movements, and the fact that unlike the Tea Party movement, no candidates have signed on yet, this is not particularly suprising.
