Maybe he wasn't perceived as a contender because of the lack of media attention- the most he ever got was by dropping out and how much he spent on his hair and how much his house is worth. It's sad, they just want a Clinton/Obama media created drama. Maybe if he had sunk down to that level he would have gotten some attention. I admire him for sticking to his principles and his message. I was leaning towards voting for him more often than not.
