Hillary Recounts Her True Character

What has turned out to be a recount fiasco could have turned out very well for Hillary and showed us we were all wrong about her.
 
She could have taken the high road and simply made a statement that the election is over and neither her nor the Democratic Party will take part in any recount nor accept results of any recount. This would have been consistent with her statements in condemning Trump for stating he may not accept the results of the election.
 
But that did not happen.
 
True to form she became what she condemned and became the sore loser and danger to democracy that she accused Trump of being.
 
She showed the world her true character and validated America’s decision to want nothing to do with her.

Cynthia McKinney Wins Green Party Nomination for President

Cynthia McKinney Wins Green Party Presidential Nomination
July 12, 2008

(Thanks to Greens for Greens for this article)

Cynthia McKinneyCynthia McKinney won the right to be the Green Party of the United States presidential candidate in 2008 today at the GP-US Convention in Chicago. In an overwhelming vote, McKinney, a former Member of Congress from Georgia, was picked by Greens from states across the country to be their standard bearer this year. Hip-hop activist and journalist Rosa Clemente was selected to be the vice-presidential candidate of the Greens.

McKinney served six terms representing DeKalb County’s 4th Congressional District as a Democrat and now lives in California.

About 800 delegates are attending the convention at the Palmer House Hilton hotel.

Rosa ClementeClemente said she accepted McKinney’s invitation to be her running mate because she believes the former Georgia Congresswoman’s platform addresses issues not addressed by Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama.

“I chose to do this, not for me, but for my generation, my community and my daughter,” said Clemente, 35, in the statement. “I don’t see the Green Party as an alternative, I see it as imperative.”

Utahns for McKinney needs your help getting her on the ballot in Utah as an Independent candidate (The Green Party in Utah did not achieve ballot access this year). Please contact Dee if you can help.
