Two women of color on Wednesday filed for candidacy in Utah to be on the ballot as Green Party candidates for president and vice president of the United States. Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente join an already diverse ballot, with Barack Obama leading the Democratic ticket and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential nominee.
McKinney is a six-term former Congresswoman from Georgia, who ditched the Democratic Party last year. Her running mate, Clemente, is an independent journalist and hip-hop activist.
