    A powerful Green party would be handy.
    In every country that has a viable Green party, said party started on the local level and worked its way up. As long as that isn't done, the Greens can run presidential candidates until the cows come home and won't ever get anywhere.

    Also, Green parties cannot survive in the long run as "the party of purity trolls." They have to become pragmatic in order to be electable by a broad majority. Green politicians who believe they "sell out" if they run on a platform that actually gets them elected get initial headlines, but in the long run, they fall by the wayside.
