I just read about Unity 08 in Newsweek. The upshot:

“The Unity08 plan is for an online third-party convention in mid-2008, following the early primaries. Any registered voter could be a delegate; their identities would be confirmed by cross-referencing with voter registration rolls…”

Wow! Using the Internet in much the same fashion as Howard Dean did a third party could barge its way into the 08 Presidential election. As Newsweek’s Jonathan Alter says 40% of all Americans self identify as Independents these days. That leaves 30% each for the polarized, self righteous, Democrats and Republicans.  Could such a plurality bring America together again? Check it out: Unity 08.
