If so, we are possibly seeing the emergence of a period of three party rule.

It's only happened with the greatest rarity in 240 years, and never in the modern, mass communication era. Our system is stacked against it,

i agree, but i partly depends how you define it....

had too look : Bull Moose lasted longer than i thought; Perot's Reform Party (19% of vote in '92) still alive; American Independent Party (5 states for Wallace in '68) still alive. but neither are really serious

.. last time a 3d party was seriously viable was pre-Civil War Republicans.
