5. The libertarians always have a candidate.

Is this one any higher-profile than any others over the years? Does he have any more chance than any other Libertarian candidate to get votes that would otherwise go to Obama?

I think the Libertarian candidate conceivably takes a few votes from the left, as well as a few votes from the right, but not enough to matter either way (unlike someone like Nader, Anderson, or Perot).

There's always a Libertarian on the ballot, isn't there? When I was in high school, the Libertarian candidate spoke to my government class. I got my picture in the paper talking with him afterward (naturally, I was asking about the legalization of drugs - LOL). I can't even remember his name...aren't they typically unmemorable?
