With fewer people enamored with the "major" parties, the WDT rightly notes in an editorial this may be a year when looking at third party candidates, even for the highest office, is worthwhile.
The Green's Jill Stein is a Harvard educated physician and the Libertarians are fielding former two term GOP governors on their ticket in Gary Johnson and William Weld.
So many people have continued reservations about the candidates burped up by the R's and D's. Some, as in Jeb! and former bowtie Republican George Will say they won't vote at all which is anathema to the American system.
Interest in these candidates may allow participation in the rigged Presidential Debate system, generally meant to perpetuate the duopoly.
Ross Perot participated in 1992 and in 1980 John Anderson and Ronald Reagan debated one time and President Carter refused to participate.
In any event today's editorial rightly reflects reservations about the two candidates offered up.
