3rd party dreams or derailers

You want to know what frustrates and conflicts me? This:

Allen (R)
1,006,876 50%
Webb (D)
982,054 49%
Parker (I)
22,107 1%

This is with 80% reporting in VA. Look at that Independant vote. Add it to Webb's votes. Match that up with Allen's. I get frustrated because I beleive strongly in the need for a viable third party in the US, but I think I believe more strongly in making a statement against leadership like Allen's. I don't know, I'd like to be an idealist but things like this bring out the realist in me. A revolutionary I'm not, perhaps. Maybe only in my dreams.

p.s. - yes, I realize these #s are fairly insignificant right now wrt final outcome =)
