Over the past few weeks, the Harry Browne show interviewed the nominees for the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States. Gary Nolan, Michael Badnarik and a representative of Aaron Russo were all questioned regarding their campaign strategies.

Personally I felt Gary Nolan was the most impressive of the candidates. He seemed the most enthusiastic and came across very well. To me it seems he possesses good people skills. Mr. Badnarik was too dry and uninteresting when answering questions, whilst the representative of Mr. Russo made numerous unrealistic claims regarding his campaigning.

The Libertarians generally acquire about 1% of the popular vote in US presidential elections. I believe Mr. Nolan is the best candidate to match or even improve upon the LP's traditional vote totals.
