    The last I heard, the Green Party wasn’t even letting Nader run on their ticket this year. I miss the comfort of the 96 election when we were able to vote Nader to our hearts content without worrying that Clinton would fail to be re-elected.

      People in California can still vote for Nader this year. Despite a Republican governor, California will still go to the Democrats. Therefore, Californians can vote for any 3rd party candidate without much fear that Kerry-Edwards will lose Cali’s electoral college votes.

      If Dean was the Democratic nominee, I would’ve voted for him. Since I don’t like Kerry, and the state is going to him anyways, I will be casting my ballot for Nader this November to help him get the 5% goal.

    The Green candidate this time around lives in Eureka. I can’t remmeber his name, though, and my first election jaded me too much to really care. How sad.

      California voters really can’t do too much about the 2000 election. According to Michael Moore’s documentary, the Republican’s knew ahead of time that Florida was going to be a critical battleground state. So, the Florida debacle was out of Californian’s hands.

      However, since California’s electoral college will most likely go to the Democrats this year, I can safely vote my conscience this year when I cast my ballot for Nader. I want to help him get closer to the 5% goal so he can be a major contender in the 2008 elections.
