In case you haven’t heard, Ralph Nader is still a tool.
While Nader has done some commendable things in the past, for the last eights years he has been nothing more than a nuisance with an over-inflated ego.
While there is no question his affect on the 2000 presidential election when he garnered 2.7% (2,882,955) of the vote, his numbers have been falling steadily since then, grabbing a middling 0.38% in 2004 and a virtually nonexistent 0.05% this year.
It proves that Nader needs to hang up his political aspirations. Unfortunately, I doubt that’s going to happen as he continues to overplay his place in politics; “We believe history will treat the Nader/Gonzalez initiative kindly in part because its reading of the necessities of the American people was accurate as was its condemnation of the concentrated powers that have for so long denied them livelihoods of decency, security and voice.”
Yeah… that or you’ll fade into political insignificance like Joe Lieberman.
Hey, a guy can hope can’t he?
