Five minutes ago on Meet the press, Ralph Nader announced that he will run again run for President of the United States, opening the door for another catastrophe in American elections. In 2000, Ralph Nader pulled over 90,000 in Florida. After GOP manipulation of the election, GW Bush won the state by a margin of 537 votes. Had Gore had only 1/20 of the votes Nader siphoned from him with his candidacy, GW Bush would never have been president and the debacle of the last seven years would never have happened. I support Nader’s views on almost every issue, but he cannot win. The better he does, the more likely we are to have John McCain as President. I therefore oppose his candidacy.
