James Carville, the legendary Democratic campaign manager, thinks there's a third party in the works, not this election cycle, but the next:

"My macro position," he says, "is that in 2008 there's going to be a significant third-party movement in the United States that's going to combine Naderism and Buchananism. It's going to be native; anti-immigration; antitrade; very, very cool on military intervention; America first."

Excellent. All my favorite villains together in the same place. Nader, the whore of the trial lawyers, and Buchanan, the 1930's isolationist and closet anti-Semite, deeply deserve each other.

There's one major problem with this alignment, though: social issues. Although Buchanan and Nader may agree on foreign policy and trade, they will come to blows over social issues. Buchanan is anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, anti-drugs, anti-porn, pro-prayer in schools, etc., etc. Nader followers are the opposite. I suspect that alone will sink any party that tries to encompass both their followers.

meaning: immature, not yet

未来 == mirai == future
未未 == madamada == still, not yet (perhaps usually spelled in kana: まだまだ

'Tree' (木) with additional branches. Originally meant the same as 'end/tip' (末), but eventually the shorter 'tip' came to mean 'still growing/immature/not yet complete'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Growth of immature tree not yet finished.'
