23. Hard to answer that question.
I prefer Dean, and there are a number of candidates mentioned that would send me to the Green party, but there are some who I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt and see how they perform before making a decision.

Tim Roemer would definitely send me over to the Greens.

I too have been teetering at the edge for some time. I really don't think it's that big of a deal. I can still work and vote for Democratic candidates that I like, and I can always switch back if I need to, to vote in a caucus or primary. I see it as more of a symbolic gesture and a way of sending a signal to the Democratic party.
