PARTY TIME
Meet the spoilers
BY DEIRDRE FULTON

Before you watch John Kerry and George Bush muddle through scripted debate remarks and ripostes Thursday night, why not learn more about this electionís outsiders ó those third-party candidates (yes, Ralph Nader has company) whose names are on ballots nationwide but whose platforms are mostly mysteries? Crashing the Parties 2004, which premiered last week at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, contains footage from a year spent on the campaign trail with the "spoilers": Nader, Green Party candidate David Cobb, Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik, and Constitution Party candidate Michael Peroutka.

"Itís kind of interesting to think about people who take a significant part of their lives and put it toward running for president when they realize in actuality theyíre not going to win the election," says documentary co-director Al Ward. "Most of them stand for very different things, but the one common string is that the two parties have to change."

WGBH 2 will broadcast Crashing the Parties 2004 at 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 30; coverage of the presidential debate follows at 9 p.m.
