    Keyes is a Democrat? Are you sure about that?

    "Alan Keyes is a Democrat" Funny stuff!




    Alan Lee Keyes (born August 7, 1950) is an American conservative political activist, author and former diplomat, and perennial candidate for public office.[1][2] He ran for President of the United States in 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2008, and was a Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in 1988, 1992, and 2004. Keyes served in the U.S. Foreign Service, was appointed Ambassador to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations under President Ronald Reagan, and served as Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs from 1985 to 1987.

    Why wasn't Ron Paul on the list?

    I got too many names, so assume there is an "other" option, and write in your choice. Let's kep this serious please, and not have a bunch of liberals pick who we want to run for an easy win for Obama. Who do you think would have the best chance against Obama, and, of course, why?

    Edit: Poll options added.
    A Liberal puts a List out, for the Repubs to "choose" from?

    Just a touch presumptuous Redress.

    I deserved that. Well, he definitely is no longer Republican.

    On April 15, Keyes confirmed his split from the Republican Party and his intention to explore the candidacy of the Constitution Party.[86][87] He lost his bid for the party's nomination, however, coming in second to 2004 CP vice presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin at the party's national convention in Kansas City, Missouri on April 26, 2008.[88] During the convention, the party's founder, Howard Phillips, gave a controversial speech in which he referred to Keyes as "the Neocon candidate" who "lingered in the Republican Party until a week ago."[89] Following the defeat, Keyes held an interview with Mike Ferguson[90] in which he compared his defeat to an abortion.[91] Later, Keyes told a group of his supporters that he was "prayerfully considering" making a continued bid for the presidency as an independent candidate,[92] and asserted his refusal to endorse Baldwin's candidacy.[93]

    Instead, Keyes formed a new third party, America's Independent Party, for his presidential candidacy. America's Independent Party gained the affiliation of a faction of California's American Independent Party. However, the AIP ticket, which had Brian Rohrbough of Colorado as its vice presidential candidate, was only on the ballot in California, Colorado, and Florida.

    I sincerely hope the Republicans pick Palin, though I hardly doubt they will. Romney seems to be a more feasible option.

    Running as a third party candidate is a great way to guarantee your going to lose. If your smart you get the political machines to pay for your campaign. The last guy to try to be elected president who wasn't a republican or democrat was Millard Fillmore, running as a whig in the 1850's.
