Rosa Clemente on the Van Jones resignation

Rosa Clemente, former Green Party Vice Presidential candidate, raises some important points in her recent article on the resignation of Van Jones from the Obama administration and what it means for the vitality of political life in the U.S.

While I was a supporter and canvasser for the Obama/Biden campaign, my ongoing support for Democratic candidates has been largely fueled by a feeling that a third party candidate was an impossible dream. Maybe I'll start steering my campaign contributions to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, an elected official much more in keeping with my political philosophy than most of the DNC.
