Democrats taking progressive voters for granted. Again.

I just finished reading a great article by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair (at Counterpunch) about the Senate race this year in Minnesota, where the Democrats have gone nuts because the Greens had the nerve to pick a candidate of their own to run, rather than just supporting the incumbent Senator Paul Wellstone. Just like when Nader ran for President, the Democrats have begun to wring their hands over Ed McGaa’s candidacy, saying he’ll “steal” votes from Wellstone and cost them the race. In fact, it’s the Democrats and Paul Wellstone who made every effort to give those votes away, the same way Gore did in 2000.

Anyway, read the article for yourself here.
