BALTIMORE – A doctor who ran against Mitt Romney for Massachusetts governor a decade ago won the chance to challenge him again on Saturday, this time as the Green Party's presidential nominee.

Jill Stein, 62, an internist from Lexington, Massachusetts., blasted both Romney and President Barack Obama, saying both had become too dependent on donations from corporations in order to acquire office at the expense of the nation's citizens.

"We need real public servants who listen to the people -- not to the corporate lobbyists that funnel campaign checks into the big war chests," Stein told applauding supporters at a Holiday Inn in Baltimore. "That's what brought me to the Green Party, the only national party that is not bought and paid for by corporate money."

Stein acknowledges that her candidacy is a super long shot. Still, she notes that a growing number of people are expressing frustration with the two major political parties and she...

Snapped off the TV and lit a giant Tire Fire in my backyard....

She looks eerily similar to many female drivers with either Deval Patrick, Barack Obama or Elizabeth Warren bumper stickers on their vehicles.

An internist at 62? Ya think maybe she has a problem completing a task? She has a problem with Obama and Romney taking corporate funds? Right, from the Green Party one would only expect that funding would be obtained by floating junk science as a means of stealing money from idiots who don’t know any better.

Ralph Nader won Florida for Bush and saved the nation. Give her credit, she may save the nation herself.

It’s always good practice to have a mountain of tires in the backyard ready to be set alight for just such occasions.

Excellent forethought; we could all learn from your example!

Darn, I was pulling for Roseanne Barr...

Imagine a Barack, Romney, Barr debate....

Maybe she could sing the National Anthem again to get the debates started....

An internist is not the same as an intern.

Funny...I looked her up on the Massachusetts Physician Licensing Board's website.Not much of a doctor,it would seem.No office...doesn't accept any insurance...not taking new patients.I wonder what she does these days to amuse herself? Or to make a living? Working for "the cause",perhaps? Living off the trust fund,perhaps?

Jill Stein,Trust Funded Revolutionary

Interesting. She doesn't accept Medicaid, either.

Harvard grad, though, and has a published article to her name:

In Harm's Way: Toxic Threats To Child Development, Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics Vol 23 (1 Suppl) S13-22, 2002 Feb.

I am hoping she gets to make some noise.

She might could pull off a few of those Occupy folks and treehuggers.

I’ve already posted some of her videos on other websites. I am hoping some of the liberals give her consideration.

obama certainly doesn’t represent the 99% protesters.

She’ll pull votes from Obama, in MA, not Romney. I doubt it will be enough to make any sort of difference, but it might be interesting to see.
