 > Is she still a member of the California Green Party?

   If she is, that would help to explain the demise of the Greens.

 MB> PDA is not the Democratic Party.  They are a group dedicated to
 MB> transforming the Democratic Party.

   Umm, hasn't that been tried, like, 49 times already and has accomplished 
absolutely no such transformation?! :-(

 MB> PDA has demonstrated great willingness and commitment to work with
 MB> Greens, Pinks, and other peace and justice activists as it shares [...]

   At least they're up front about their aim to co-opt other leftish 
groups. :-(

   BTW, could someone clue me in as to what she means by "pinks"?

"In 1998, the top 1 percent of stock owners owned 47.7 percent of all stock, 
while the bottom 80 percent owned 4.1 percent. Between 1989 and 1998, nearly 
35 percent of all stock market gains went to the top 1 percent of 
shareholders. 64 percent of American households have stock holdings worth 
$5,000 or less, or own no stock at all." -- www.inequality.org
