It's Junkie Day around here again, and of course the political news is... Iowa. We'll preview tomorrow's caucuses, and find out what it really means to win that state. The surprise this week, though, is talk of a possible third party run in 2008. Nothing's official yet, but New York Mayor Michael Bloom is scheduled to meet next week with a dozen other pols from both parties. The goal: lay out plans to form a government of unity in Washington. Former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman will be a part of the mix, and she'll talk third party politics with us today. And Ken Rudin tables not one but TWO trivia questions! Do you want to see a third party run for the White House? Do you think an independent can win?
