From what I saw on TV, Doug Schoen was saying he wanted “centrists” and “moderates” on the Americans Elect ticket. I know he name-dropped a few but I can’t recall who. They sounded like they were leaning more to the liberal side though, as “moderates” as defined by the media tend to. Schoen and Pat Cadell were the ones who wrote this editorial saying Obama should step down and let Hillary take over this year:

They may act just as much as a spoiler against Obama as against the Republican. In fact, Hillary is probably their dream candidate. They may really have this dream that a “moderate” can win the election. But at this point I think it’s just as likely they pick someone who takes away votes from Obama as much as from the Republican.

On the AmericanElect ticket the winning primary candidate
has to choose a running mate from the opposite party I think
so they can work together in a partisan fashion so they say.
This whole thing is weird if this was such a great idea why didn't they call for this when Obama was running the first time? Obama could have chosen Palin as his running mate instead of Biden. Also Obama is a candidate on the Americans Elect site so is Ron Paul I think that is weird. I gotta go and find my tin foil hat and finish watching the X Files-things are just not adding up
