Nader Considering 2008 Presidential Run

Nice to see that Ralph is still willing to play 'the spoiler'...

Consumer advocate Ralph Nader told the Green Party's national convention that he is considering a 2008 presidential run and accused Democrats of trying to shut smaller parties out of the political process.[...]

In 2000, Nader got 2.7% of the votes in the general election. Democrats say he siphoned votes from the party's nominee, Al Gore, in Florida, New Hampshire and elsewhere, giving the election to Republican George W. Bush. In 2004, Nader was much less of a factor.[...]

Nader said before jumping into the 2008 presidential race he would have to put together an organization of thousands of volunteers and pro bono lawyers to defend him against the "Democratic quadrennial assault."

"We're going to be ready for them. We will confront them on every level," Nader told a news conference. "They better have clean hands."

Gore could not carry Tennessee. His home state. First things first.

If only it was Nader vs. Paul! >-D

Paul Hamilton:

Yep, Gore was the only man who could have beaten Gore, and he did...

That being said, I wish Nader would just go away. I'd suggest a nice long drive in a Corvair.
