No way.

The versatile is suggesting that a third party candidate will be a good idea; and that is resonating in many circles, and making even the die-hard among both the Democratic and the Republican parties swoon.

That the political atmosphere in Washington D.C. will remain unresolved, as the parties continue to push their agendas relentlessly.

The Website is naming a few potential citizens, who will qualify to lead the country out of the quagmire that it is in; names like, Erskine Bowles, the famous financial expert, Hillary Clinton, the present United States Secretary of State, John Chambers, CEO of Cisco Systems and Condoleezza Rice, among others; to challenge President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election.

These are strong and influential people; and they have achieved success in their individual fields, and therefore, they are qualified to be leaders just as the president; yet, is this the right time to search for a third party candidate?

A new face will add more momentum to what many people are thinking of, the financial policies of the Obama government, and the stiff opposition to them by the Congressional Republicans; that must go and make for new political conditions to exist.

What happened in the debt ceiling and deficit reduction talks have angered ordinary folks, who are assuming that the parties are not ready to compromise on any issue. So, the country is divided strenuously.

The Supercommittee to handle the outcome or continue with the talks is not a surety that the crisis will be resolved; so, what is the country to do, find a replacement candidate? No, that will only add to the confused situation the country is in.

The Republicans are not even sure of who their choice will be. Either Romney or Perry; or Gov. Chris Christie, who does not want to run in the 2012 presidential race, but he is being literally forced to.

Again, the situation in Washington is dire; with the opposition making it harder an harder for the Obama administration to achieve anything substantial.

Now, people are going to ask for another controversy of having a third party to come in the fray. It will rather make matters worse, in many citizens' minds.

So though, a new person will not be ruled out, as it cannot; but it will make a lot more sense for the country to rally behind the president's effort to get the ditched economy to be straightened out. That is what Americans must be striving for; and not a new face.

They have to tell the politicians to stop bickering, and attend to the nation's needs.
