Will Firedoglake support Green Party candidates?

A provocative post at Firedoglake’s Seminal blog asking the question “Will FDL support Green Party candidates in 2010 and 2012?” has whipped up an energetic discussion.

  1. I don’t know what FDL will do, but if Obama and the Democrats keep governing like Republicans, there will be individual liberal bloggers who will cross party lines to support Green candidates.

  2. I think it’s important for Greens to make our case on “progressive” democrat blogs. Of course we’ll get attacked by the majority of these bloggers but its a convincing argument that they need to hear. The smart ones will come around if they keep hearing our case and keep seeing it supported each time the Democrats disappoint – sounds like a few dems on this blog are well on their way.
