Third-Party Candidates Face Off

How do they feel about horses and bayonets? The third-party presidential candidate debate was Tuesday night in Chicago, with Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson, Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Constitution Party nominee Virgil Goode, and Justice Party nominee Rocky Anderson participating. Larry King and Christina Tobin served as moderators, kicking off the night by asking candidates their opinions on the “top two” system of selecting candidates—a method that most, unsurprisingly, opposed. The Democratic and Republican parties are putting a “stranglehold on our democracy,” Anderson said, with Johnson labeling Obama and Romney “Tweedledee and Tweedledum.”
