But the "old" Greens would probably be upset about these "noobs" coming and stealing thier party. I would at least give them a VP slot.

And the Greens would probably be more powerful in places where natural disasters are more prone (Gulf Coast, esp. Louisiana and Florida I would think.)

ahead of ya there

certain key issues will swing in the Greens favor in Hurricane, drought, wildfire states

I don't know Green party so much, but those folks you named would probably stand down and opt for behind the scenes roles if they can get a "name" candidate?

Excellent - which states did you have in mind?

And I would probably agree with the "back scene" roles, but only if they felt the new guys believed the same thing and weren't just trying to jump on the bandwagon. Again, I'd put the current main Greens as VP choices, and maybe main. But I don't really know too much about the party either.

And Nader would probably be a little irked, although in 2004 the Greens didn't endorse him, and I do recall them giving him some pretty harsh criticism, so who knows.
