  •  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.
