2008 Green Party Presidential Debate Photos

by Green
My photos from the debate this afternoon.

The debate went very well, with about 800 in attendance and a broad spectrum of questions put to the candidates by local media and the audience.

The main host was Aimee Allison, who did a great job, and Cindy Sheehan and Mark Sanchez presented many questions from the audience. Ralph Nader answered questions separately at the end, since his candidacy is not yet declared. The rest of the candidates -- Jared Ball (DC), Kent Mesplay (CA), Cynthia McKinney(CA), Kat Swift (TX) & Jesse Johnson (West VA) -- all answered questions in a debate format and the arrangement was fine with most everyone. Mainly, people just wanted to hear what candidates had to say on the issues and what points they wanted to make. Both Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader expressed strong support for Cindy Sheehan's candidacy, which was important.

This was an exciting local first, the first time that very two high-profile candidates have participated in a public presidential forum for the Greens. A representative from the Canadian Greens spoke to the fact that Greens around the world are watching our progress and support us 100%. It was good to hear, to get a sense of how this party spans the world, and how important that may be in the upcoming days.
