Hey, remember the Green party?
They may have gone to sleep in New Jersey, but apparently they're fairly active in Arkansas (!) and the unions are considering supporting one in a challenge to supposedly Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln in return for her not supporting EFCA due to her patronage from Walmart.

I do remember them. They keep running the same guy for president over and over. Don't they have primaries? Even the Libertarians have primaries.
You're not talking about Nader, right? Cause he was only a Green Party candidate in 2000. He ran independently of them in 04 and 08, and the Green party had their own candidates. And they do have primaries: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Party_(United_States)#Nomination_delegate_count
Huh? They were in the race in 2004 and 2008? I didn't notice. But then again, I didn't notice Nader running as an independent either.
tsk. and i thought you were such a loyal reader of the blog.
