For once I don’t think it would matter much
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, January 31, 2008

Just a feeling, but a fairly strong one:
Ralph Nader, the consumer advocate who ran for president in 2000 and 2004, said he is considering another bid for the White House because he believes the current contenders aren't standing up enough to corporate interests.

``Look at the major areas of injustice, deprivation and solutions that are not being addressed by the major candidates,'' Nader, 73, said in a telephone interview today. Among other issues, he cited the need for a ``practical timed withdrawal'' from Iraq, programs to crack down on corporate fraud and a rearrangement of the U.S. tax system.

Some Democrats blame Nader for spoiling former Vice President Al Gore's bid for the presidency in 2000 by taking support away from him in Florida, the state that decided the election.
Big mo is on the side of the Dems right now (record Dem turnout if FL which didn't even count?) and the Reps seem bound and determined to simply rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic. No matter what Nader might draw, it won't matter (and besides, his entrance would make McCain the younger candidate).

In my small upstate New York village, with a leftwing base so far out there that it can barely be described, Nader blew into town last year to make three appearances in one day in support of the incumbent mayor who was a big Green Party celebrity. The opponent had no name recognition, while everyone knew who the mayor was. The mayor expected that Nader’s stamp of approval and earnest support would see him to easy victory, and he was even speculating in one of the area newspapers about whether his margin of victory would reach 2 to 1.

He lost by about 20 points in an election where roughly 1,000 votes were cast.
