There’s a new Twitter feed for Green Party politician Jill Stein, with the address featuring a suggestive year: jillstein2012. At the same time, Jill Stein’s web site has been transformed, no longer focusing on her past political campaigns in Massachusetts. The site is now entitled Draft Jill Stein for President.
The domain, jillstein.org, is registered to Ken Selcer of Lexington, Massachusetts, and asserts that it is being “run by Green Party volunteers.” Among the volunteers that have signed up so far are Ron Hardy and David Schwab, editors of Green Party Watch.
Also among the list of volunteers is Jill Stein herself. I’d say that this presidential draft effort is one that’s likely to be successful.
The Jill Stein Facebook page reports that “We expect Jill Stein to announce her decision to run for President on October 24th. Spread the word.”
It seems that Jill Stein won’t be the Sarah Palin of the Green Party, stringing her supporters along in order to get some attention. I don’t have much doubt at this point that we’re going to see a Jill Stein campaign for President.
