Is this a democracy or isn't it? I mean I thought that one of the definitions of a democracy was that any citizen was permitted to run for office.

The thing is, I've always been a supporter of the Green Party and of Nader. I'm not a Democrat - I'm a Progressive - Democrats do not automatically deserve my vote and if they don't put forward a progressive agenda they will not get it. Sometimes that will mean that Republicans get into power because more people support the Republicans. That's democracy - deal with it.
