Another comical run for the WH by consumer advocate Ralph Nader. He's blamed by many to have siphoned off voters from Al Gore in the 2000 election.

Jeez, not this **** again.

Anybody who casts a vote for Ralph Nader should seriously consider their motive in doing so. What a waste of the franchise.

Or see a shrink . . .

I'm all for voting for whomever you think is the 'best candidate', however . . . there are just people that will never get it, Nader (and those voting for him) fit said category.

Since as of right now, no other news outlet is talking about a Nader run, perhaps he is going to appear on the show to discuss ethics in politics.  crazy

At least he won't be sentencing us to Bush like he did in 2000.

What's that? Why does the DNC want Perot? The front-runner for the Dems is, right now, ahead of the front-runner for the GOP. If anyone should be looking for a spoiler, it's the GOP, not the DNC.

Once again, L-188 shows how removed from reality he is.

Because Mr. Elephant ear is the reason Bill Clinton won in 1992.

Well it's now official.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23319781/

WASHINGTON - Ralph Nader is launching a third-party campaign for president.

The consumer advocate made the announcement Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." He says most Americans are disenchanted with the Democratic and Republican parties, and that none of the presidential contenders are addressing ways to stem corporate crime and Pentagon waste and promote labor rights.


Now all we have to do is convince H. Ross Perot to step into the fray! Common Ross, you can do it one more time!!!!!

Do the math.

Isn't it true that independent candidates usually siphon votes away from the Democrats? Are you saying that Perot's 19,743,821 votes all came from former Bush supporters? A stronger Bush Presidency and campaign would have prevented the loss of votes to Perot, wouldn't it?

(Serious question - as this was before my time.)

Cool website, btw. I love data.  Smile

Ross wasn't your typical independent candidate. He was an extremely successful business person who had personally financed a rescue of his employees when they were stuck behind enemy lines in Iran. He was for fiscal restraint in a period following Reagan's deficit spending and Bush's betrayal on his no new taxes pledge.

While nobody can say for sure, it is widely believed that Perot's presence in the 1992 election fractured the GOP base of fiscal conservatives and drew some middle of the road moderates and that was a major factor in Clinton's first victory.

Nader -- just have to shake my head. WTF? At least McCain will be able to say he's not the oldest man running for president anymore.

I would suspect at this point that the Nader campaign will get a LOT of money from Republican contributions. Think about it! individuals are maxed out at $2300, but they can each give an additional $2300 to a second candidate, if I'm not mistaken.

Widely?

An awful lot of people who normally vote for democrats voted for Perot.
