I feel like we should assign points to this, maybe like:

Announces candidacy: +2 points
Announces exploratory committee: +1 point
Withdraws: -1 point
Participates in the debates: +1 point per debate
Wins primary/caucus: +5 points
Wins less than 2% of the vote in primary/caucus: -2 points
Wins nomination: +20 points

Something like that? Suggestions welcome.
