I am hoping he doesn’t. The last thing we need is, after a W win, for someone to say he wouldn’t have won if it weren’t for Ralph Nader:
Ralph Nader, whose campaign for president in 2000 arguably tilted several close states — and victory — to George W. Bush, is considering another run.
In 2000, Nader ran as the Green Party nominee, winning about 3 percent of the popular vote, including 97,000 votes in Florida. Democrat Al Gore lost the election when Bush defeated him in Florida by 537 votes and the U.S. Supreme Court halted a recount. Nader, who thrives on controversy, bristles at the “spoiler” label, saying it is “offensive and a violation of my civil liberties” to tell him not to run.
And there are increasing signs he will run again, from the creation of an exploratory committee this month to constant meetings with Green Party members and longtime supporters nationwide.
“I’ll decide next month,” Nader said Wednesday, pushing back his earlier promise to decide by year-end.*snip*
Just keep the pies away from him til he decides.
