Two key progressive voices have not been allowed to participate in the debate yet one candidate has been allowed to him and haw and say he will be there and then he won't be there.
Does he want to debate or not? There are two progressive voices who have gained enough ballot lines to win a free and fair election. Either would gladly have taken your seat.
But, alas the debate is to go on.
The statements on the debate from the two progressive candidates are as follows:
Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party candidate, and the party put out this release on tonight's debate:
WASHINGTON, DC — Green presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney will be blogging live at the web site of the 2008 Presidential Debates Project (http://www.bloggingthedebates.com), a project of VoterWatch.com, during the debate between Barack Obama and John McCain in Oxford, Mississippi on Friday, September 26.
On Wednesday, Cynthia McKinney said she is ready to step in for John McCain at the debate, after Mr. McCain called for postponement of the event (http://www.gp.org/press/pr-national.php?ID=108).
The Green Party defends the right of voters to be informed about all the candidates on the ballot and to vote for which candidates best reflect their interests. The party has strongly protested the control over the presidential debates by the Democratic and Republican parties and their corporate sponsors, which have an interest in limiting the number of participants to Democratic and Republican candidates — which the League of Women Voters once called “a fraud on the American voter.”
Greens have called for Cynthia McKinney’s inclusion in the 2008 presidential debates, along with other candidates with ballot lines in a majority of states: independent Ralph Nader, Libertarian nominee Bob Barr, and Constitution Party nominee Chuck Baldwin.
