So. Ralph Nader’s running for president… again.
Sure, it wouldn’t quite feel like a proper election without him–Nader’s been on the ticket ever since I was old enough to participate. But the thing is, he generally appeals to young voters seeking change and this time around, Clinton and Obama fill that already crowded niche. Yes he brings another voice to the campaign trail, but really–in terms of a run for the presidency–seems to me that ship has sailed.
Nader also wrote off any suggestions that his entry into the race could draw enough votes from the Democratic candidate to help the Republican win. “If the Democrats can’t landslide the Republicans this year, they ought to just wrap up, close down, emerge in a different form,” he said
