    Jesse Ventura in 2016

    Perhaps not Jesse Ventura but someone not attached to either party that is not owned by big business.
    I don't think Howard Strern would be a good choice as VP.

    Ah, good ole' Jesse. Thanks for the fireworks, ya scary old maniac, you.

    I don't think I'd vote for him, but third party? With enthusiasm.

    Only if Hulk is at the top of the ticket.

    Oh, wait, make that the Rock, since we are in the black worship period of the great american decline.

    Third party influence is fine and dandy, but 9/11 truthers can get ****ed.

    What he said.

    I'd vote for someone out of the mainstream. I have, in fact, when neither of the two "major party" candidates were acceptable.

    But, like someone who is mainstream, the candidate I vote for has to at least appear to be sane, well informed, and honest.

    Ventura is a tinfoil hat wearing nutcase. Straight-up 9/11 truther. He will never be president.

    Hell NO! Why is this even a serious question/ first question about the 2016 race? There are much more qualified candidates on both sides of the aisle before even taking this guy seriously. Never for this fraud or any of the "third Party" options currently out there. You guys really need to do more research on these people. They are called fringe for a reason... The only way, I'd go off ticket, is if Jon Huntsman decided to run independent because he hasn't been to kind to the Republican Party as of late.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    America will never vote for someone "competent" as a leader of a third party. Just the few comments here and the premise of the OP tells you that celebrity and the unusual is what titilates the average American's interest. Aren't you tired by now of idiotic incompetence in the Oval Office? Get real - you're country has big problems to solve.

    What's next, Kim and Kanye on the Hollywood ticket?

    Is that the long lost brother of Ace Ventura, pet detective? Totally voting for him.
