An interesting perspective. There are possibliites. One is that America already has a third party and Obama and company are the result of it. It's the Progressive Party at work taking over the framework of what we understand to be the Democratic Party. Certainly the LIberal Party is at work but it at best draws from the population of the Republican Party. There may be a few fringe moderates in the Democratics who would join forces here. In the end, America is at a loss for a strong, dominant third party in the political arena. We are a population too divide among two parties to ever really guarantee the survival of a third party unless some of us are will to change the way we think. A very interesting possibility. WB
To me yes its possible for a Third Party. In many ways now
it looks like the re-establishment of re-made political parties. Democrats moving to Progressive, and a real Third Party possibility is the tea party re-made into a Christian party
If you look at Becks rally today as an example, I think a Christian party (Tea Party re-made) to Offset a Progressive Party (Democrats re-made) and a Republican Party (Liberal Capitalists re-made) are very Possible now.
If it happens it could Guarantee Obama another 4 years, because not enough strength to vote him out, between a three party split. Hmmm! Very Interesting Question, Very

Do You Really Think Of The Tea Party As A Real Third Party?I don't think of the tea party as a true third party. It's just the more radical part of the Republican Party. People like Sara Palin are dumber than dirt and don't impress me. Remember her statement that you can see Russia from Alaska. I...
