    ELECTION 2012: Third-party candidacies: Rarely successful, often influential

    Despite the vast ideological landscapes and political freedoms that set the United States apart from much of world, the 2012 presidential election has been, like so many American elections of the past 150 years, ultimately a two-party contest.

    BENEDETTO: A new Ross Perot?

    DECKER: Glenn Beck's third-party insanity

    Glenn Beck said on Monday that he could support a third-party challenge if Republicans nominate former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to run for president against Barack Obama. "If I had a gun to my head, I'll vote for Mitt Romney," he explained. "If it's Newt Gingrich, and there's a third party, and it's Ron Paul. ... I might consider Ron Paul as a third party." This position is nuts. Obviously Mr. Beck needs to generate attention for his new GBTV venture since giving up his popular Fox News platform, but promoting ideas that would lead to an Obama second term is reckless and bad for America.

  • Bloomberg's odds long for presidential victory

    Election analysts, pundits and editorial writers say an independent presidential run by New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg offers little more than the prospect of a White House spoiler.

  • Forum: A billionaire insurance policy

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has changed his party affiliation from Republican to Independent. Mr. Bloomberg was a lifelong Democrat until he became a Republican in 2001 and entered the New York mayor's race. He won the general election, taking office just four months after the attacks of September 11, 2001. Governing as a "conservative" (New York style) on taxes and fiscal policy, while leaning liberal on social issues, Mr. Bloomberg capitalized on Rudolph Giuliani's success and easily won re-election in 2005. His second (and final) term will end in January 2010.
