  •  The Green Party always runs a candidate (2+ / 0-)

    Their candidate this year is particularly weak and hapless and will do even worse than Fitrakis in 2006, who got about one percent of the vote. Here's betting  Spisak gets half a point at best. We all know your beef about coal and nuclear energy, but Strickland has done a lot to move the state forward on alternative energy that you and Spisak both distort and/or ignore.

    •  The Green Party ran against PAUL WELLSTONE! (0+ / 0-)
      There is no satisfying them.
      •  The Green Party chose only the Governor's race (0+ / 0-)

        and is not running candidates for Senate or any other statewide office. They did that because of Strickland's environmental record, solely.

        It will hurt.

        •  Are you sure they're not doing it (0+ / 0-)

          to retain ballot access?  In some states, like New York I know, ballot access is dependant upon the governor's race or statewide races.

          •  hand in hand (0+ / 0-)

            they wouldn't have a shot at ballot access if not for Strickland's record.

            Greens are also running in select congressional races.

        •  Are you retarded? (0+ / 0-)

          The Green Party is running three candidates for Congress, and for State Representative.

          I doubt Dennis Spisak's 700 primary votes spells doom for the Strickland campaign.

          The Green Party didn't run candidates because they are the weakest third-party in Ohio and have been.

          The Socialist are running a Senate candidate, btw.

          You're ascribing a level of tactical thinking that the Green Party just simply isn't capable of doing.

          •  So you agree (0+ / 0-)

            that the Greens are not running in any other statewide race, which is what I said, but you just have to always be an infant.

            Obviously, third-party primary vote is not an indicator of GE vote.

        •  Didn't Krikorian adopt your anti-nuclear plan (0+ / 0-)

          for Pike County?

          And then lost Pike County?

          Yeah, you sure know how to craft a winning message.

          •  Jim Parker was always going to win Pike (0+ / 0-)

            which I always said -- he won Pike against Wulsin in 2006. And it has nothing to do with anything pro or anti-nuclear as there IS no operating nuclear anything at Piketon.
