While Mitt Romney and Barack Obama battle for the title of Almighty Ruler of the Kingdom of the Electoral College, let's take a moment to remember the candidates who won't win… but run anyway.

Hello again from the Green Party convention in Baltimore! Indecision just chatted with the two women at the top of the Green Party ticket — presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein and vice-presidential candidate Cheri Honkala.
First up, Ms. Honkala, pictured here on the left. Click through for the full interview, plus our conversation with Dr. Stein (yep, the one on the right — of the photo, not the political spectrum).
Comedy Central's Indecision: So when did you find out you were going to be the Green Party's VP candidate?
Cheri Honkala: I was notified weeks ago that I was on a list, but I figured… there's no way in hell I'm gonna be chosen. Then I got the call from Jill in my living room, and I had to make the hardest decision of my life. My little boy Guillermo did the happy dance in the living room: You can't tell a 10-year-old you're running for vice president and then change your mind.
CCI: Now, historically, presidential and vice presidential candidates are quite wealthy. Can the American people relate to someone who's not a millionaire?
CH: I think the majority of people can relate to things I have to deal with, like cars breaking down, dodging bullets when you take your kid to school, figuring how to get enough money to buy a gallon of milk, figuring out which bill you're going to pay.
CCI: Not only are you not a millionaire, you're not famous. That's another thing we like in our national candidates.
CH: But as the press has been pointing out, I have a famous son.
