As part of Morning Edition's coverage of third party candidates, host Bob Edwards talks with Reform Party Candidate Patrick Buchanan. Buchanan, a staunch Republican since the Barry Goldwater days, says he's running on this ticket because he feels the Republicans are not addressing the big issues. He says the Republican presidential ticket has a political agenda that's close to the current administration. Buchanan says his Reform Party offers an entirely different vision for the country, one that includes de-centralizing the federal government, an emphasis on states' rights, and lessening the power of the Supreme Court.
