No Libertarians in US Presidential race
According to the Political Compass (you know, the are-you-a-good-Libertarian-or-an-evil-fascist/stalinist test),
virtually all Presidential candidates are right-wing authoritarians
; or at least all the ones remotely likely to get elected. Bush is, of course, the most extreme in both right-wing and authoritarian dimensions, though current Democratic frontrunner John Kerry is shown as being almost near the centre; i.e., only a tiny bit right-wing and authoritarian. Oddly enough, the most libertarian candidate is Al Sharpton (isn't he meant to be some kind of extremist black-nationalist, and/or funded by the Republicans as a spoiler?).
