Unfortunately, the momentum for a 3rd party has to be built up 
practically from scratch after the betrayal of the Demogreens in 
the 2004 election. The only favorable indicator is the shattering 
of illusions about Obama that make it possible for an aggressive 
challenge to him. That is the main reason the Democrats might 
smile on a primary challenge since it would channel discontent 
into the same old shit.
