    Friday on PBS' NOW with Bill Moyers, the four major third-party candidates take on the issues they believe are being ignored by the two main political parties. On the evening of the second Presidential debate in St. Louis, NOW's David Brancaccio moderates a conversation between the candidates that were excluded: Reform Party Presidential nominee Ralph Nader and Green Party candidate David Cobb and between Constitution Party candidate Michael Peroutka and Libertarian Party candidate Michael Badnarik.

    "There are no ground rules agreed upon in advance," says Brancaccio. "We expect spirited conversation about what political ideas they think are absent from the national dialogue, that aren't being addressed at the tightly controlled Presidential debates."

    A recent Zogby poll of likely voters shows that 57 percent would like to see "other candidates" included in the Presidential debates.

    NOW with Bill Moyers airs Friday, October 8, at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings at http://www.pbs.org/now/sched.html)
