you make a valid point, BUT--the way our system is, the only viable presidential candidates are O and romney. guaranteed! no matter what, over 95% of all votes cast will be for those 2 guys , and one or the other will be sworn in jan 20, 2013. get over it! if you waste your vote by voting for one of these others, you deserve to get O for another 4 years. this is known as vote splitting. i learned it at boy's state in 1963!!!
