As a progressive but pretty rank-and-file Democrat -- thanks! :) And you've got my promise, man, I won't talk about Nader on this forum again. Debating it at this point does seem both a) pointless and b) an active waste of energy. And there's a lot of other work to do!

Well, you get to break the promise if Nader ends up running in 2004.

I do want to make it clear that, though I've made a number of assertions about what I am likely to do in the General, I'm not at ALL completely set on what my strategy/philosophy will be in the general election season. I really have to do some serious soul searching. I had to think long and hard before actually supporting Kucinich and I had asserted before that that I'd never support a Democratic presidential candidate no matter how progressive he was. After the primary is decided and after the Greens actually pick a candidate and once the debate gets rolling and I really think about all that is at stake and how different voting options will affect that...then I'll figure out who I will support and in what way I will support them.

I am open to debate in the general. Right now, given limitted information about who the candidates will be, I suspect that I'll vote Green in the general but that isn't set in absolute stone.
