Third party dilemma - What to do when the "system" no longer works
Advertisements [?]
I don't know of a lot of liberals who would argue that the system is broken, possibly beyond repair. So what should a progressive, honest, committed leader do under these circumstances? I am speaking of people like Al Gore and Russ Feingold. I think both of these gentlemen have come to the realization that the two party system, in its current state, no longer functions. There is no opposition party. There are Reublicans and "Democrats in name only".

For the sake of discussion, lets not get into a Green bashing orgy.

Is it not time for a leading recognized guy like Gore to run outside of the Dem party?

What are the pros and cons?
