Medved: Fourth Party Prospects for Victory

Third party candidacies are generally a waste of time, but this year a fourth party candidacy could capture the White House.

Here’s how it might work: with Democrats deeply divided, the Bernie brigades might walk out of the convention, with Senator Sanders or someone else from his camp running as the Green Party nominee. That would create an opening for an independent conservative candidate—like Senator Ben Sasse, or Condoleezza Rice, or Mitt Romney. With four November contenders each likely to draw at least 20% of the popular vote, a candidate could win with just 30%. And with four candidates sharing debate stages, and each carrying a few states, chances are good that there’d be no Electoral College majority—sending the decision to the House of Representatives, where mainstream conservatives predominate.

Best of all, with four candidates, voters could choose a leader they like, rather than voting for Trump just out of hatred for Clinton, or backing Clinton because of fear of Trump.

Medved: An Empty Museum

Leaders of the Palestinian Authority recently dedicated the Palestinian Museum: a $24 million building meant as “a space to celebrate and redefine Palestinian art, history and culture.” The only problem: the sprawling museum opened with no exhibitions at all—highlighting the troubled nature of Palestinian identity.

What is “Palestinian art, history and culture”?

Who are the most famous Palestinian artists or rulers over the centuries?

Actually, there are virtually none—because Arab residents of the region never identified themselves as distinctly Palestinian until the 1960’s.

Far from displacing an indigenous population, Jewish efforts at return and rebuilding spurred growth in local Arab populations. The empty museum communicates the synthetic, empty nature of Palestinian nationalism and extremism.
