Support grows for Green Pres. candidate

The hiphop support for the Rosa-Cynthia ticket is fascinating and impressive http://theonlygreenroom.blogspot.com/2008/08/hip-hop-support-for-us-green-candidates.html ; and Cynthia herself is vastly impressive: See my previous posts on this, e.g. http://rupertsread.blogspot.com/2008/08/mckinney-not-obama.html
One important thing is that enough people back McKinney to put some serious pressure on Obama not to sell out any more, especially now, at the Dems' Convention. One encouraging straw in the wind: Obama has been talking more strongly again about taxing the rich and spreading the benefits, over the last week: http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/columnists/article4596341.ece

 
Still worrying is his reliance on entirely dodgy contributors: http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/08/05/america/bundlers.php
I believe that Obama is the best U.S. Dem. Presidential candidate since Carter. However, that is saying precious little. Let's back McKinney, to put pressure on Obama and to build a longer-term alternative.
