    This actually has happened in the past, with the Union Party (Lincoln ran on that for his second term) and in 1896 when the Populist Party nominated William Jennings Bryan and then faded away after he lost. It might have happened other times but those are the ones I know of.

    Oh yeah, and did you see the poll numbers for Robert Milnes 2012 with Cynthia McKinney as his VP? Impressive stuff.
