Of course it will be different in the US. Especially if the Greens get the 5%, we have a good model for the likely outcome - the Reform Party, where the takeover of the party by ruthless sectarians converted a goo-goo budget-balancing party into a fascist conservative vehicle. Workers World, Fulani's folks and a range of other groups are no doubt licking their chops in anticipation of taking over Green chapters across the country come 2004 in that case.
