Q&A #2: Mass. Greens

Via email, "Steve" asks: 

David, what advice would you give Jill Stein and the Greens- What do they need to do to breakthrough and win seats on Beacon Hill?

Easy: re-register as Democrats.

No, seriously. There's nothing wrong with being a "conscience of the left" third party, and more power to them. And maybe -- maybe -- with a good candidate the party can win the occasional state rep seat. But the Green-Rainbow party is never going to be a major office-holding party in this state, and certainly Jill Stein -- who I like -- is never going to win a statewide election. I assume that those aren't the party's goals. If those are the goals, they're wasting their time.
