Minnesota's in the Middle

All things Minnesota politics

Wednesday, May 31, 2006


A movement is being created by former Maine Governor Angus King among others to get a strong independent or split ticket to run for president in 2008. In January of 07 the plan is to start registering delegates for an on line convention to select the presidential and vice presidential candidates.

I've learned not to get excited about these sorts of things as they often don't pan out, but with Governor King on board chances are something meaningful will come from this. That being said I strongly recommend you go over there and sign up to show that there are more of us in the middle looking for a real option then the partisans might want the public to think, and beyond that so that the field of potential candidates has motivation to get to take on the challange of running for president outside of the Democrat or Republican parties.
