Former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is on the political comeback trail again. This time, she’s running for president.
In a speech posted on her campaign Web site, runcynthiarun.org, McKinney, 52, ended weeks of speculation and officially announced her run as a Green Party candidate. She sounded the theme “Come Home To The Green Party” while attacking both major parties as supporters of the war in Iraq and tools of corporate interests.
On the upside for Democrats, she will not steal a lot of votes from the Dem. candidate a la Nader. On the downside, I might be forced to hear her deep thoughts.
