Sorry. I was tied up posting under one of my other screen names in a meeting.

Rockmjd, on behalf of Tracer Bullet, I'm serving you with a motion to order you to cease and desist forthwith all accusations of Googling, Wikipediaing, Yahooing, or Asking Jeeves against my client, Tracer Bullet.

Tracer, you'll be receiving my bill for $11,000.

Most people were smart and vaguely described the recession (under a term that is actually known). If they went for dates, they went for them mostly successfully. It looks like only the stock market crash of 1987 really caused some problems for some.

Sure. Because it's not as if discussions of various historical economic downturns haven't been all over the news for the past few months or anything. WHAT ARE YOU IMPLYING ABOUT MY CLIENT!?

Alan Keyes (4): achau, belbox, Bman, Jason

Geraldine Ferraro (4): jdodd, Nick Danger, Palaver, wishbone

Hillary Clinton (2): arminius, Thor

Sarah "You Betcha" Palin (2): missflores, wmansir

Would Shirley Chisholm and Al Sharpton count, since they were never their party's candidates?

They weren't candidates in any general election for the presidency or vice-presidency.

When was Hillary Clinton a party candidate? Also, I vote no on the other two unless they ran independent.

Hillary Clinton is also an incorrect answer.

I'm pretty sure "General election" wasn't in the question when I answered it.

But if Shirley doesn't count, then neither does Hillary Clinton.

I would argue about more, but I really have no idea who most of those people are. One thing I do know: we need more Cynthia McKinney pictures.

The rest of them did actually get on the ballot in at least one state in the general election. I forgot Keys made up his own party after failing to get the Republican and Constitution nominations.

Most of them were vice-presidential nominees of various minor/fringe parties - Greens, Communists, etc.
