Jill E. Stein '73 turns off her radio and climbs down from her headquarters. The treehouse behind her, she knocks on the back door of a Toyota Prius.
-Well, Jill, um, I've, um, been checking. [She quickly opens her computer.] It's close—the Republicans and Democrats are neck and neck.
-And the Green Party? How is the Green Party doing?
-Well, Jill, we don't have any electoral votes. Not that we expected any. This is probably not our year.
-Not even one?
-No. We almost got three percent of the vote in Rhode Island, though. If only more of the environmentally-conscious pacifists who like taxes got out to vote today. That would have done the trick.
-Next time, Cheri. Next time.
-Yes, we will run again. As Nader has shown, the race never ends.
-I can see it now. Jill Stein 2016: The President of the Future. My tagline: ‘It's okay, I’m a doctor.’
-You used that one this time around.
-Whatever. It's really good. Let's get out of here.
[Cheri begins to start the car.]
-Stop! Drive? We can’t use gas. We will stand true to our party. [She motions to a horse-drawn carriage behind them.]
-Naturally. But where are we going?
-Well, it's like when we fought to get into the debates—
-But didn't we get arrested?
-We're going to take the White House by storm. We're going to do what’s right for America.
