      Because I want to know about ALL of my choices--it's cowardly to bias a debate by excluding legitimate contenders. Moreso, it speaks to the lack of character of any candidate who would participate, and thus "legitimize" them, in an exclusionary debate. I don't support cowards.

      Neither Obama or Romney care at all about the constitution. We DESPERATELY need a 3rd party!

      We need 3rd party candidates to be heard. I saw Democracy Now's coverage of the mainstream debates with the same questions being asked the 3rd party candidates in real time and I was inspired. I now know how our country needs to change. We have to embrace 3rd party candidates because they expand on the issues that are brought up in the mainstream and they bring up issues we care about that are completely shutout of the mainstream debates. Please show this debate on your station.

      I was just looking at the electorial college map and noticing how many elections had more than 2 candidates gettting votes: Theodore Roosevelt, Robert M. La Follette, J. Strom Thurmond and the list goes on. Other voices than the two parties is a long American tradition that should be honored and continued. Sometimes some of these other guys has something important to say.
