Stein gets almost half a percent : )

Relieved that Obama won.

Looks like Stein is 4th in MN with 0.44%, up from 0.18% in 2008. Libertarian Gary Johnson finishes 3rd, with 1.19%! Obama won by 7% in MN, so about 200,000 more people could have voted for Stein without affecting the outcome.

What's frustrating is that the media wants a close horse race so they can get higher ratings. And if all elections are close, most people will never be brave enough to give Greens a chance to win. Maybe the Democrats can nominate a real progressive in 2016, but they had better start now. (NOT HILLARY!)

Sadly Graves did not beat Bachmann, but both amendments failed, and this may have helped Democrats to retake the state house and senate.

Alan Grayson and Elizabeth Warren are Democrats who might be acceptable to some Greens.
