Don Quixote ended very poorly..
Trump is pretty much acting on what the GOP ran on for years. Now that might make a few that was looking for something else upset but it puts him pretty much in the mainstream as far as politics go.

Default Source: Kasich, Hickenlooper consider unity presidential ticket in 2020

A Republican and a Democrat running together as independents. Sounds good to me

Source: Kasich, Hickenlooper consider unity presidential ticket in 2020

Under this scenario, Kasich, a Republican, and Hickenlooper, a Democrat, would run as independents with Kasich at the top of the ticket, said the source, who cautioned it has only been casually talked about.

Would go down in flames. I would seriously consider voting for such a ticket but extremists/ crazies run things for both parties.

Crazies give money

I was just going to start a thread on this.

I hope it happens - - I'm tired of the madness of the two party bickering.

A true Moderate candidacy? On the surface the general population would love it. But would the parties work with them?

I don't think so. The grass roots movement of Sanders would have to be the model for success.

It really does feel like the time is now for true third party success, though.

More important is getting money. That might be a problem.
