the vote to get seats in parliament. The German Greens have even joined
the current coalition government of the Social Democrats.

candidacy -- and its potential contribution to the election of Republican
George W. Bush -- an "alarming" threat to the principles of Greens in
Europe and the United States, Kilian said.
