Lesser evils, lesser candidates and lesser chances


Whether or not Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are “lesser evils,” Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader are “lesser candidates” who won’t win the White House. So people who don’t wish to vote for the latter two, or other Green Party and independent candidates like them, will have to decide who has the “lesser chances” of beating “A HUNDRED YEARS” in Iraq John McCain. An article from the conservative but savvy Washington Times says it well. See “Hillary the lesser threat to McCain” at

The Free Speech Zone offers a space for contributions by the TC Daily Planet. This is an open forum for articles that otherwise might not find a place for publication, including news articles, opinion columns, announcements and even a few press releases.

And in that context my following resolution was unanimously supported by my record-breaking Minnesota precinct caucus:

“BE IT RESOLVED that to prevent President Bush or any other President from completing an illegal agreement with the illegally created government of Iraq that would enable U.S. bases, U.S. troops and U.S. contractors to continue in Iraq, Congress should allow no funding to implement such an agreement.”

For those who aren’t already aware, on January 23, 2008 Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) introduced a bill which squarely addresses that alarming issue. See “H.R. 5128: Text of Legislation” at

Clinton and other Congressional Democrats have introduced similar bills. Obama and other Democrat leaders strongly support them.
