How about McKinney?

That is Cynthia McKinney; you will most likely remember her from her altercation with the Capitol Police. She supposedly attack a policeman, it got lost of play on CNN and probably cost her re-election. But beyond that, she is trying to win the nomination for the Green Party and if one is a true Progressive her record and evals by various groups is pretty impressive.

Rated 0% by the NRLC, indicating a pro-choice stance.

Rated 80% by the HRC, indicating a pro-gay-rights stance.

Rated 97% by the NAACP, indicating a pro-affirmative-action stance.

Rated 80% by CURE, indicating pro-rehabilitation crime votes.Rated +20 by NORML, indicating a pro-drug-reform stance.

Rated 100% by the CAF, indicating support for energy independence.

  • Voted NO on 'Fast Track' authority for trade agreements.
  • No MFN for China; condition trade on human rights.
She has a strong pro-environmental stand, pro-family stand, and pro-worker stand. Her stands are consistent with those of "real" progressives. She deserves a good hard look if you are looking for a candidate other than the Big 3.
