[Marxism] The Question for Third Party campaigns [was Grim Voter Mood...]

Running independent political campaigns are supposed to aim at more than
"getting out the ideas."  That is, you could do that any number of ways and
don't have to invest the time, energy and effort into a political campaign
to do so.

We run such campaigns in hopes of mobilizing people to do something beyond
the election....  And I don't mean just joining the organization that's
running the campaign....

What do you want to leave behind the campaign?  The misleadership of the
Greens has failed to do this consistently.  McKinney and Nader, who have
personally-centered campaign styles have failed to leave much of anything
behind.

Who's been successful at this?

And how?
