Some progressives aren't comfortable with voting for DLC and/or non-progressive Democrats. I personally believe Greens or other third party progressives should challenge the mainstream/DLC Democrat when this is the case. This can also occur within a Democratic Primary (a progressive Democrats challenges a non-progressive one). So, I'm just suggesting supporting progressive candidates against non-progressives regardless of what party is next to their name...

p.s. Of course a progressive should not siphon votes from a non-progressive and get a Republican elected. One reason I don't buy the Nader spoiler argument is that he simply didn't get a very high percentage of the vote. If he had gotten even 5%, perhaps you could blame him for Gore's loss. I don't think he's responsible with the 1-2% he got, or whatever it was.
