1. I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but here's my .02
Keep in mind that most Greens are disenchanted and disenfranchised former Democrats. If Kucinich draws them back to the Democratic table by signing on as a Democratic candidate, along with a lot of other disillusioned former Democrats, it can only be good for the Democratic party overall.

My positions is Greens should call themselves whichever party affiliation they feel is going to uphold their issues best. If Kucinich is the SOLE Democrat that does that, then what they are is Crossover Green voters. Considering the push to get the same reaction from disillusioned Republicans for the Democratic Nominee, I can't in good conscience criticize Greens for crossing over.
