She Can't Get No Respect.

Former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is desperately clinging to the vestiges of her career, but isn't succeeding too well.

Voters in her new home state of California have rejected former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in her bid for the presidency on the Green Party ticket. They voted instead — by a margin of more than 2 to 1 — for Ralph Nader in Tuesday's presidential primary.

But McKinney's defeat in California is a blow to the campaign she launched there last October. California and Illinois are considered key Green Party states. McKinney declared her candidacy in December after ending a campaign swing through the Midwest with a stop in Chicago.

McKinney, 52, served six terms as a Georgia congresswoman before losing her seat to Hank Johnson in 2006. She moved to the San Francisco area last spring to attend graduate school at the University of California, Berkeley.

I guess you know how this one will be filed.
