Q: Could a third party candidate sweep across the country in 2008 and inexorably split the Republican Party?
A: I sure hope so, and right now it sounds like a real possibility. Swiftboat fabricator Jerry Corsi thinks so:"[Constitution Party] Chairman James Clymer told WorldNetDaily the party was excited about the possibility of Gilchrist as its marquis candidate. "Yes, indeed, we are interested," Clymer said. "Gilchrist spoke to us last weekend in Tampa and our people asked Jim then if he would be the candidate. We think it would be wonderful if Jim Gilchrist would seriously consider being our presidential candidate."
Gilchrist told WND the only candidate he would support as the Republican Party presidential nominee in 2008 was Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. "If John McCain enters the race for president," Gilchrist said. "I will definitely run." So what if a right-wing nut job did run, what impact would he have?
Last week Rasmussen Reports released polling
that found that a third party candidate who "promised to build a barrier along the Mexican border and make enforcement of immigration law his top priority" would run a strong second behind the Democrats -- and ahead of the GOP -- in 2008.
