In my opinion third parties carry their own baggage. For all intents and purposes Carter was paramount to a third party candidate and when he reached Washington he immediately was confronted by obstructionism from both sides of the isle and was quickly marginalized and made ineffective.
I think any dark horse, third party winner would face the same.
As many of us sit around on ATS arguing Obama vs Romney vs Paul vs Johnson vs the other few who I can't even name by rote, I can only say that we might expend our energies better by spending more time figuring out how to fix the broken throne than about who might next sit upon it.
