This week we've seen signs from two Republican candidates that they might be up for it (Buddy Roemer, who tells us he's going for it; and Jon Huntsman, who won't rule it out).Meanwhile, fresh off the Internets, The 99-Percenters is pitching a third party for the Occupy Movement.

Please share in the comments. read more
