The Presidential Debates, now on the Huffington Post’s Change My Mind and powered by IDEA, will present the best case for Obama and Romney’s positions, for your consideration. Why not let the candidates test your views? They just might get you to change your mind.

We'll see you there in September!

I watch the two presidential

I watch the two presidential debates of Election 2012. And I must say that those debates did not give me a good picture of who is the best person to lead the country. The televised presidential debates locked out 14 other viable prospects - and the Democrats and Republicans consent to lock them out because they're scared of opposition.

FPTP

Given the first past the post system in the US elections and even more so the electoral college of the presidency they dont have much reason to be worried about minor third parties as those parties will not be able to compete for the presidency without a lot more money and a very carismatic candidate or else winning a reasonably large number of more minor elections at state level and congress to build up support and recognition first.
