(FinalCall.com) – An outspoken critic of the Iraq War who frequently challenged many of the Bush administration’s policies, Cynthia McKinney has always been a courageous advocate for the people. Having served six terms representing Georgia’s 4th Congressional District, she is well aware of the inner workings of the corridors of power in Washington D.C. and she seeks to change it.

The Green Party’s nominee for president of the United States sat down with the Final Call’s Assistant Editor, Ashahed M. Muhammad to talk about her candidacy, her reasons for leaving the Democratic Party and her approach to foreign policy specifically relating to Africa.
