CA Green Party debate in San Francisco

Little bits and pieces of news coming from the Green Party Presidential Debate in San Francisco last night. Heard that Amy Goodman from Democracy Now! was there, and I think it might be worth waiting for her commentary.

It appears that presidential candidate Jared Ball said some words about everyone supporting Cynthia McKinney. I will be interested to see what exactly he said, and what are the implications for his campaign.

Some fuss about Ralph Nader not going on stage with other candidates. My guess is that Nader has to play things more safe related to announcements and his status as a candidate or not, since the duopoly is always on his heels with critiques and lawsuits. Still, wish the man would just announce or not.

It was exciting that Cindy Sheehan, who is running an independent campaign for Nancy Pelosi’s seat in Congress, was a moderator. And, everyone seemed to be supporting her.

Green Party Presidential Debate Draws Audience of 800

The Green Party presidential candidates debated each other in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon, January 13. The event attracted a paying audience of about 800 people. The presidential candidates were Jared Ball, Jesse Johnson, Cynthia McKinney, Kent Mesplay, and Cat Swift. Ball announced at the end of his closing statement that he would be devoting his energy toward helping Cynthia McKinney obtain the nomination, so one could say that at that point, he withdrew as a presidential candidate.After the debate was over, Ralph Nader spoke briefly, and also took questions from the audience. He did not talk about the presidential election, and gave no indication that he will be declaring his candidacy for the Green Party nomination.

Here is the San Francisco Chronicle story about the event.

 The candidates were given questions on Iraq to immigration by a panel of media personnel, including Luke Thomas from FogCity Journal, Amanda Witherell of SF Bay Guardian, Mary Ambrose who is managing editor from New America Media and Larry Bensky of KPFA. A member of the audience complained that there wasn’t a representative from the ethnic newspapers to the applause of others in the audience.
