"I believe in coalition politics, which is why I have always, in the past, voted straight Democratic. Democrats represent the coalition that includes left and center. I am also basically a bleeding heart liberal of the first order, a First Amendment absolutist and an environmentalist. In some governmental systems I would naturally be a Green. The most valuable contribution Greens can make is to exert some pressure on the Democrats not to be ignored as the Dems struggle to get voters from the middle. The perfect solution, it seems to me, is to vote Democrat where it counts, in swing states, and Green in other states to send a message."
