On May 25th, 2007, Cynthia McKinney was interviewed by phone on the air by New York City's WBAI. The interview included her thoughts on the complicity on the current Democrat majority, the Bush mobilization against Iran, the ongoing military interventions across the African Continent, speculation on the possibility of a Green Party presidential bid in 2008 and plans for the June 9th Revolutionary Love event scheduled for NYC as a fund raiser to retire the debt from her 2006 Congressional campaign.
In a 24 minute interview, she described the Democrat Party as "parting the waters for the Bush Administration" in his prosecution of his war on the people of Iraq.
Speaking of the current contenders for the Democratic nomination, Ms. McKinney told her radio audience, " . . . with the current crop of candidates, who are all supporting a military action against Iran, and who none of them support impeachment; they can not speak for me any longer."

Former Georgia Democratic Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is seriously eyeing a run for president on the Green Party ticket - and local and state Greens are enthusiastically rooting for her.
About 30 activists gathered at the Ronan Street home of Charlie Pillsbury, who represents Connecticut in the national Green Party structure. They came to help McKinney retire the $50,000 debt from her 2006 campaign (in which she was unseated in Georgia's open primary, which lets voters cross party lines) so she can focus on an even bigger race. They also came out to support Green mayoral candidate Ralph Ferrucci (pictured).
McKinney has been vilified by her political opponents and the major media since she arrived in Congress in 1992, and became an outspoken opponent of U.S. military intervention abroad, specifically the war in Iraq. She also questioned the Bush administration's actions leading up to the terrorist attacks of September 11 - a line of questioning that was misrepresented by the Republicans (and parroted by some powerful media outlets) as accusing Bush of knowing about the terror attack in advance. That helped lead to her defeat in 2002. She was re-elected in 2004 and defeated again last year, partly as a result of unflattering reports of an altercation with a security guard in Congress, which she also claims misrepresented the facts. She was also portrayed as anti-Jewish by AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, for her criticism of Israel.
