The "Other" Debate

The New York Times (at least their blog), has dedicated a little space to a proposed last-minute debate among third-party candidates.  While the article does little in terms of actual reporting (they confirmed McKinney "will also be there, according to her website," without actually lifting a phone to call the campaign), it does do a great deal of speculating.

The Republican Case Against the Republican Party

To be sure, Senator Barack Obama is certainly to the left of Senator John McCain; however, it's not a stretch to say that the real John McCain has more in common with Barack Obama than he does with his own party.  In fact, McCain frequently drew the ire of his party for many of his supposed "maverick" votes in the Senate.

Do you see much difference between McCain and Obama?

Yes
35% (654 votes)
Maybe
10% (196 votes)
No
55% (1019 votes)
Total votes: 1869
