Third-party candidates should participate in the debates

Why is it that the only party candidates that get into the presidential debates are Republicans and Democrats? Why not let a couple of the other parties' candidates participate as well?

I would like to see the Green and Libertarian parties in the presidential debates this year and every election year afterward. That way the American people would have a better view of who is running and what they are proposing to do.
