I was 8 years old when John B Anderson was running 3rd party. I thought 3 candidates were normal. The little I could figure from the TV – I was interested in it – nobody else in the house was — I liked him better than the peanut farmer (who I did a book report on that year in 3rd grade) and the old John Wayne fake with the greasy/crispy shoedie hair. They wouldn’t let him into the debate thing I remember that. The “dark horse” they called him. I was mad. I liked him. Wasn’t fair. Wanted to hear him again. (I’d heard him once or twice on TV). Next couple of elections when I was 12 and 16 I was looking for 3rd party people. Nothing significant. Didn’t know it was uncommon. Anyway, it taught me from a young age that it is what it is with this stuff. At least in this case it’s Constitutional and States Rights here rather than the whim of some party organizers so they can fight it through courts if needed
