I am not in the loop as to who Jill Stein might choose as her running mate, but I think Chris Hedges would be a pretty great choice.
Hedges is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and activist who has written some of the most profoundly powerful critiques on American politics and society in the past decade.
Additionally, Hedges is set to speak at the Jill Stein in Philly rally being held during the Democratic convention. Hedges is a powerful voice and someone who could really bring some name recognition to Stein’s campaign.
One thing that is clear is that Hedges is a powerful voice for Jill Stein to have behind her. With the recent addition of Cornel West to ‘team Stein’ this election is shaping up to be a strong one for the Green Party. The corrupt and corporate Democratic Party should be afraid. For too long they have been ignoring important issues relevant to ordinary people in favor of passage of legislation that helps corporate America. Absurdly awful programs like the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) have sold ordinary people out in favor of insurance company profits. People are finally waking up en masse to the fact that the Democratic Party does not work to better their lives and these people are willing to do something about it.
