Chicago Hosts 2008 Green Party Convention; McKinney, Clemente Win Nominations

Green! Besides the more famous connection, Chicago has forged another connection to the 2008 presidential election — hosting the 2008 National Convention of the Green Party of the United States, where former Georgia representative Cynthia McKinney won the 2008 Green Party presidential nomination.

McKinney chose New-York-based activist and journalist Rosa Clemente for vice-president; Clemente accepted the nomination. The McKinney / Clemente ticket has become the first all-female-of-color ticket in US history.
