Are you looking for a 2008 presidential candidate who has a solid history of activism and an earnest desire to make this country a better, fairer, more just place to live in?
Consider Rebecca Rotzler. As a SUNY New Paltz student, she headed up Students for a Free Tibet before becoming part of a Green Party team that ruffled a few feathers while running the New Paltz city government. Rotzler has recently been involved with anti-war, anti-Bush and sort-of-socialist group World Can't Wait and helped organize that recent Impeach Bush summit in New York City you may have read about. Rotzler got just 8 votes out of a total of 122 in an exploratory Green Presidential instant runoff poll in January of this year, but those who appreciate her work feel strongly enough that they've started up a website to Draft Rotzler for President in 2008.
This is the time in the election cycle when we're supposed to be looking around and considering our alternatives, right? Why not cast that net as widely as possible? If you're looking for a candidate to articulate values on the left side of the progressive political spectrum, follow the links above to check Rotzler's record out (read also this profile).
