Electioneering, 2008

Bill Curry, a counselor to President Clinton, and a two-time Democratic nominee for governor, weighed in on the two-party stranglehold facing voters, in Sunday's Hartford Courant.

Curry had some things to say about a new party, seeking to represent ordinary Americans, the Working Families Party. He also spoke about the need to open up debate, post-election, including ideas from third-party candidates like Ralph Nader, and others.

Personally, I didn't see much on the WFP site to indicate they offered much in the way of choice, as they seemed locked and loaded for Obama, one of this year's corporate choices for president.

Nader, on the other hand, offers some real choice, and speaks to change that a minority of us can believe in.
