Cynthia McKinney to run for President as a Green?

From a Texas Green Party activist’s e-mail list, that’s the word I have. The former Georgia Congresswoman, active in opposition to the Iraq war, a leader in impeachment calls, and strong in challenging the influence of AIPAC over American foreign policy, is being actively courted by the Green Party.

McKinney recently moved to the Bay Area … and registered to vote as a Green Party member.

She would be, in Green Party terms, a great candidate, relatively speaking, in terms of name recognition and political experience. Not sure how much of a backfire personality issues might cause.
