Many believe that third parties are an irrelevant drain on the political system. Still others believe they play a vital role in our democracy, in that they allow blogs like ours to interview their vice-presidential nominees.
A few weeks ago, we submitted a list of questions for Rosa Clemente, the Green Party’s nominee for vice president of the United States. This week, she handed our ass back to us.
Indecision2008: Do you think a Green Party candidate can win the presidency?
Rosa Clemente: YES
INDY: No, seriously. Do you actually think a Green Party candidate can win the presidency.
RC: AS LONG AS IT’S A DARK GREEN
INDY: What’s the 3rd party convention scene like?
RC: WHITE FOLKS THOUGHT WE WERE THE HELP
INDY: Tell us about your first 100 days.
RC: ARREST BUSH AND COMPANY, MAKE ANGELINA AND BRAD’S CHILRDREN MY CABINET AND NO MORE TAXES
INDY: Who’s your favorite president. Ever. From any country. Or TV Show?
RC: PRESIDENT PALMER FROM THE SHOW 24
INDY: Describe your leadership style in one word. Don’t say green.
INDY: Who will you be voting for?
RC: WHO WILL YOU BE VOTING FOR?
And that’s how Green Party vice-presidential nominee Rosa Clemente received the only “A” on the philosophy final.
