Ralph Nader is running for President. He had said he would not run as long as Edwards was running, and did not announce his campaign for President until Edwards left the race. He has an active website, and also regularly writes at the CounterPunch.org site. His running mate, Gonzalez, did an interesting article entitled "Not My Kind of Change", concerning the 2008 campaign on CounterPunch.org a few months ago. Nader's website is www.votenader.org. Cynthia McKinney, who is a Black woman is running as the Green Party candidate. Her site seems to be down much of the time, but she does have supporters among many progressive African-Americans. Larry Pinkney of the BlackCommentator.com is one of her supporters, and has done several articles about her on his site. Of course no one expects Cynthia or Ralph to win, but it's just a matter of being sick of voting for persons who one considers the "lesser of two evils".

I didn't know this was a team for Obama supporters only. If it is, the name should be changed to "Obama Supporters Only". I thought this was a team for liberals, and I don't think there is anyone in this country more liberal, or has done more for the American consumer than Ralph Nader. And, Ralph Nader is running for President. He has a site www.votenader.com. Ralph was on DemocracyNow.com with Amy Goodman today. It is also a very liberal and a truly progressive site. DemocracyNow is on WPFW radio and now also on TV and the Internet. My not voting for the selected Democrat nominee has nothing to do with supporting McCain. Is it logical to assume that anyone who is not an Obama supporter automatically supports McCain? There are actual more than 2 parties in this country.

So since you won't vote Democratic and Ralph isn't running where does that leave you? And why stay with this team? Just wondering. You have every right to but there are so many threads and teams hosted by SparkPeople. I am sure there is a McCain group too if his politics is your flavor.
None of he TV stations here have carried it or even mentioned it. Might be on YouTube later. Don't know if he really showed up. Will have to check later. Isn't this election season fun!!!! OH! Obama is not my candidate. The last time I voted Democratic was when Clinton first ran and defeated Bush I. As I mentioned to one of my associates, the first thing he did after being in the WH for 2 days (or was it 2 hours) was push through NAFTA. I never voted Democratic again.

He's been scheduled to speak at the National Press Club today. I keep expecting it to be canceled. Not sure of the time or if any of the TV stations will be carrying it. Don't know what to believe about Sinclair. All very, very, strange. Is he just another nut or what?
