The Distant Libertarians


A problem for Barr and for the other third party candidates is how heroically distant the convention center is from everything they're doing. Public transportation stops about five blocks from the gates of the Pepsi Center, and a security gate (complete with "empty all liquids" TSA rules) stops you three more blocks from the entrance of the center. It's awfully hard for a reporter to run a "check out the wacky third parties" story without leaving the compound. And it's hard for the third party candidates (they're all here) to get close to the center.
