I'll look at the video in a moment. I continue to believe though that there have been no viable third parties in the United States because the two parties have taken steps to exclude them. I consider it historical accident that we ended up after 1864 with only two parties, but that those two parties have, since that time, worked to exclude any third party. I would say that apathy has more to dow with the lack of a third party than anything else. To creat a third party it would be necessary to build from the ground up, as i've said here many times. That means a generation or perhaps two of taking municipal, county and eventually state offices before making the attempt to go national. With the American electorate, that's expecting a lot of continued focus, which hasn't been apparent in electoral politics here.
It is ironic in a way that Joe mentioned the populists. After the movement had died in the United States, it began to grow in Canada. In the 1920s, the agrarian movement and the labor movement were successfully combined to form the CCF--the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation. Never a successful national party, they nevertheless had power in local politics on the prairies (now, once again ironically, the home of Canadian conservatism). Tommy Douglas won Saskatchewan in the 1940s as a CCF candidate, and eventually brought in the first Medicare system in Canada. In Alberta, the same system was introduced by the Social Credit Party. Canada seems to be a friendly environment for local "third" parties. The Tories finally killed off the CCF by associating them int he public mind with communism, but the wreck of the CCF joined with the Canadian Labour Congress and formed the New Democratic Party in 1961, with Tommy Douglas as the party leader. Douglas was the still the leader of the NDP when a medicare system was finally funded by the Federal government (it is funded on a province by province basis).
The CCF, Social Credit, the NDP, Action democratique Quebec (sorry for the lack of accents, i can't get the keyboard toolbar to come up) and the Wild Rose Party have all been formed in the last century. The Wild Rose Party is an extreme right-wing party in Alberta. The prairies, once the home of left-wing radical parties is now home to conservative splinter groups.
As for predictions, i personally don't make them for the reasons you gave. All i can say about your predictions is that i hope you're wrong about Clinton. I don't like her, i don't trust her, and i wouldn't want to see her in the White House.
