Guess who's planning on taking another bite out of the Democratic vote in the 2008 election? It's Ralph Nader, the "independent" without whom Al Gore would have defeated George Bush in 2000.
Nader, who took 2.7% of the vote overall, captured 97-thousand votes in Florida, the cornerstone state that Gore lost by only 537 votes, using George Bush's math and the Supreme Court's alchemy.
But for Nader Kyoto would have stood a vastly better chance of success, the Middle East would not be in flames and America would still have the respect of the world.
In an interview with the newspaper Politico, Nader said, "The two parties are still converging. I really think there needs to be more competition from outside. Democrats have become, over the years, very good at electing very bad Republicans. Democrats always know how to implode, how to waver, how to not be authentic."
Nader took a broad swipe at Hillary Clinton. "She is a political coward," Mr Nader said. "She goes around pandering to powerful interest groups on the one hand and flattering general audiences on the other. She doesn't even have the minimal political fortitude of her husband."
Ralph Nader - building a Republican dynasty, one stolen election at a time.
