Democrat or Republican, pish posh. Pick another party! I personally don't like to be boxed...

Each of these had ballot status for its presidential candidate in states with enough electoral votes for President of the United States to have had a chance of winning the 2004 presidential election--or has done likewise for the 2008 presidential election.

Constitution Party (formerly the U.S. Taxpayers Party) (1992).
Democratic Party (1792, 1820s – present).
Green Party of the United States (1996).
Libertarian Party (1971).
Republican Party (1854).

Other current national parties (that have endorsed candidates)
These parties want to organize nationally, but did not in 2004 (and do not for 2008) have ballot status in enough states to win the presidency normally. Some do not have presidential candidates, but for other offices only.

This is an incomplete list, which may never be able to satisfy certain standards for completeness. Revisions and sourced additions are welcome.
