It was only a week ago that the Commission on Presidential Debates had ten sponsors for the 2012 debates.
Today, they're down to seven. Phillips Electronics has, as of this morning, pulled their sponsorship.
What does this mean for us?
We're that much closer to seeing and hearing Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray on the debate stage this autumn!
I know what you're thinking. "It's entirely too late for the Commission on Presidential Debates to invite Governor Johnson to debate." Fortunately, it takes very little effort to add a podium to a stage. It takes a whole lot of effort, however, to convince a multi-billion dollar corporation that you wield the power to hit them where it hurts worst — their pocketbooks.
Power. That's the key word in this previous sentence. YOU HAVE ALL THE POWER NOW.

That's three down, seven to go.
Get to writing those letters, guys! This election cycle, you will CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY. Change it for the better.
Power to the people!!
Georgia for Gary Johnson 2012
Note from Paulie: Under the Commission’s guidelines for debate inclusion, other than the non-objective polling criterion, two additional candidates would qualify: Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Jill Stein (Green), the only candidates not invited to the CPD debates who are on enough ballots to win the Presidency and are Constitutionally qualified for the office.
