Members of Americans Elect could not agree on a candidate to run for the presidency. The move is ended until next election year, I assume. On another front, Roseanne Barr is attempting to gain the nomination for the Green Party. - I guess there will be no viable third party this year.
On August 4th, 2011, Roseanne Barr announced her candidacy for President of the United States on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, declaring that she would not run as a Democrat or a Republican "because they both suck and they're both a bunch of criminals."
I did not expect anything. I followed the process from the beginning, watching to see if a viable platform could evolve and a trustworthy candidate chosen. If the result had been worthy enough, I would have been in to the end. As it turned out, the website they ran was not particularly helpful to the process.

I'm pretty certain that after Ronnie's mess, no more second rate washed up actors need apply for the oval orifice...
Yup, ya never wanna underestimate the intelligence of the US electorate, Rocky. After Ronnie, they elected his vp war criminal and then a fifth rate, washed up businessman with the intelligence of a gnat.

Which makes me very happy Arnold Schwartyamacallit is not eligible to run.
