I missed that Stein announced this on Thursday, but evidently she is going for becoming a spoiler again:

Joining Cornell West as a spoiler.

No biggie. Manchin running would be a bigger deal.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

There's a bigger problem with your own appeal to the electorate if one or two minor candidates are enough to cause a defeat. The flaws in our electoral system and willingness to exploit them are becoming a larger issue than I've seen in my lifetime.

Not sure given the polarization it's even fixable.

Stein took half the votes from Clinton in 2016 than Johnson/Weld (both former Republican Governors) took from Trump in 2016.

Clinton lost it pretty much on her own.
She should have camped in the Midwest (or have a legitimate pro working class VP...hmmm... who could that have been...,<COUGH>sanders<COUGH>) and mopped the floor with Fat Donnie!
