Cynthia McKinney, Green Party Presidential Candidate, extended her congratulations to the President-Elect, but extended the challenge to her progressive audience to keep up the charge. The group was awaiting election news results for bosom friend and peace activist Congressional candidate Cindy Sheehan at her campaign headquarters in San Francisco, California.
"Time is out for OUT special interest rule in Washington D.C. Time is out for special interest rule in Sacramento, California and in all the state capitols across this country.
It is time for us to take our country back and I believe the change in the White House is the beginning of people thinking that they are taking their country back. And our work is to organize, mobilize, agitate to make sure that actually takes place."
Also in attendance was Presidential candidate for the Party for Socialist and Liberation Gloria La Riva.
