CounterPunch: Greens playing “long game” with presidential campaign

SteinSandersAndrew Stewart writes at CounterPunch that the Green Party is laying the path very early to lead a pack of [Bernie] Sanders supporters to the [Jill] Stein campaign. This explains the reason the party recently said there will be a ‘Green welcome mat’ awaiting the Sanders crowd in July and why Stein recently publicly reached out to Bernie to continue the revolution. The Greens know that someone is in the buff but the Sanders gang has yet to catch on that their emperor has no clothes.”

He continues, “The Greens just passed a major benchmark to gain federal funding. Every vote Jill Stein gets, even if she does not win, is a vote for further funding for the Greens. That is a brilliant type of long game. Even if the Greens lose in 2016, by 2018 they would have more resources for the midterm elections.”
