So Nader's already gone on the "offensive", accusing Obama of selling out minorities in the inner city (by not regulating predatory payday lenders or insisting upon the removal of asbestos in inner city buildings- clearly two issues at the forefront of the challenges facing America) and Hillary of being a corporate shill because she enjoys a relatively high level of support for a Democrat.
Here's the thing- the Bush Republicans, who wouldn't even be in office if it weren't for Nader in the first place, took the first available opportunity to roll back bankruptcy protections and to slash environmental regulations within their first year in office! Nader is a clown who can't see the forest for the trees, and the thing that really, really drives me nuts is that I know that a sizable group will go right along with him- cutting their noses off to spite their faces with their "everything or nothing" mentality. Nader insists that his candidacy will help to highlight his issues, but it seems like the man is utterly oblivious to the fact that there's an entire right wing to this country who isn't going to even listen to a word that he has to say (does he really think that the "every man for himself" conservatives care about protecting people from their own decisions, in taking out bad loans or choosing to live in places that are infested with asbestos?), let alone vote for him. Which leaves his only course of action in trying to divide the voters on the left. Great. So the only people who are actually concerned with the issues that you're presenting aren't going to be able to get into office.
With only Huckabee and McCain remaining as Republicans in the race, I can honestly say for the first time that I can remember that I'd rather vote for a Republican than an egomaniacal, fanatical leftist like Nader. The very fact that he's running at all after what happened in '08 says a lot about his character. And what it says isn't very appealing.
