Nader Explained

Here’s a fine op-ed by Bob Herbert in the NYT on the phenomenon of Ralph Nader, how great he has been, and how he could yet, however unlikely, make a difference in the upcoming presidential race. That he will take more votes from the Democratic candidate than the Republican one — John McCain — goes without saying.

While expecting, or at least hoping for, no threat of the Nader candidacy to the Democrats, Brian Donohue creates some vivid metaphors casting in relief the effect of the Nader candidacy on anyone who has an anti-corporate message.

    I know that this time around I am really put off by Nader. I do think that he inadvertently assisted GWB to get into office. Thou that was not his intent.

    I voted for Nader back then in an effort to support 3rd party candidacy. But there is no way in hell will I even consider voting for him this time.

    Unless of course there is a lifetime 6-figure job in it for me. :mrgreen:

    Ralph Nader – screwing things up since 1965.

    Hi, Joe. Thanks for your comment. Yes, I agree that Ralph inadvertently assisted GWB to get into office, although I don’t think he admits it. Glad you’re not considering him this time. Good luck on getting a 6-figure job from Ralph! 😆
