Washington and to other disaffected voters. >>

Perhaps these people need to, as someone suggested, run for some of the local
positions. I too would like to see more choices for president. But, it seems
that they would have more support, if they had elected councilpersons,
schoolboard members, mayors, etc., across the country. That would be a real
grassroots movement. that would be a strong base of persons who have already
committed to their parties' platforms. Starting at the top gives you no roots
to stand on.
