McKinney, Nader as Third Party Candidates

While a lot of attention has been focussed lately on the possibility of a third-party challenge on the Republican right, it appears that there are several potential third-party challenges on the Left.

In particular, Cynthia McKinney -- who will reportedly seek the Green Party nomination -- and Ralph Nader, who is on the California ballot as a candidate for both the Green and Peace and Freedom nomination.

Nader has made clear that he is undecided on a 2008 run. McKinney on the other hand, is apparently committed to the race.

Will the Democratic candidate sufficiently alienate the anti-war Left, to drive votes to a nut like McKinney?
