It is downright sad that this debate happened, in my university, in the building I work in, and I didn't hear about it before it happened!!!

Fortunately you can download the whole thing. I just watched it, and it's worth watching to learn something about the alternative parties.

It's over an hour, so just wget it and watch it later...

[Only linked from peroutka because he came up first in google :oops:]

The debate about what?
Who where the third party? Not to mention the first and the second party?
I guess the third party is supposed to be the alternative.

Your post makes no sense at all, what are you ranting about?

Well, I'm not American, but I'd assume it would be a debate between some of the parties considered "third parties". Aka, the parties that don't have a chance of winning. Since the US election will be over in a few days (maybe, don't forget how long the last one went on for after the vote) you won't have to make posts saying things like "Your post mades no sense at all". If terminology is a problem, there's many online dictionary/encyclopedias you can use to fix that.

Okay, lets try that shall we?
define:third party
define:alternative (alternative party didn't give any hits)
define:debate

Nope, none of those words implies that the context is actually about the US election.
Also, if this is about that, there is an official thread to post in.

Perhaps http://www.peroutka2004.com/ would have helped? :P And the official thread is Bush/Kerry only, sorry. Come on, just a few days left... :D

Sorry I didn't make it clear I was talking about the U.S. election. To anyone following the U.S. election, the term "third party" should be quite clear. Anior, about the tenth definition down in the list of definitions you linked to is the correct definition for this context. The official thread is only relevant to the two major parties, therefore this post wouldn't belong.

Yes, obviously they have no chance of winning, but it doesn't mean the debate isn't worth watching. Part of the problem is the general attitude that the third parties are irrelevant, leaving voters with extremely limited choices which both Democrats and Republicans take advantage of much to our detriment.
