Join the Party
03-26-2008
It is always a nice change of pace to talk about presidential candidates other than the big three. Today, Mike Gravel announced that he is leaving the Democratic Party, in order to pursue a ticket to the White House as the Libertarian Party’s nominee. Gravel has been a marginal character in the Democratic race from the start. We shall see whether he is substantially more competitive in the crowded field for the Libertarian nomination.
 
Speculation about this sort of move has swirled around Republican candidate Ron Paul for most of this election cycle. Paul ran on the Libertarian ticket in 1988, but was adamant as far back as last November that he had no intention of leaving the Republican Party. And judging by his recent ballot qualification for the remaining Republican contests, it sounds like he’s more interested in having a little something to say in Minneapolis this September.
