Last month we said the Americans Elect effort to field a “unity” ticket for the presidency probably wouldn’t amount to anything. So far it’s amounted to less than nothing. Although Americans Elect has qualified for the ballot in a number of states, including Oklahoma, it can’t seem to find suitable candidates for an online nominee selection scheduled next month. So an idea hailed by University of Oklahoma President David Boren is on hold. The idea wasn’t to create a third party but to offer a “2nd way” toward electing a president. Results to date indicate that it’s not a “2nd way” but a “No way!” Perhaps Americans Elect’s fortunes will improve in the same way efforts to do away with the Electoral College have. On “2nd thought,” those efforts haven’t amounted to anything either.
