Ralph Nader considering running for president

Posted by karmalily on January 31, 2008

Ralph Nader has set up an exploratory committee to evaluate whether he should run for the White House or not. Predictably, this announcement has already been greeted with far too many complaints that he “spoiled” the election and is the sole reason we have George Bush as our president. Ralph Nader is one of my three modern American political heroes (the other two being Russ Feingold and Dennis Kucinich), so obviously I’m going to support him.

Ralph Nader is not the reason George Bush is our president. Al Gore didn’t take the Florida recount far enough, and he quit too soon. Ralph Nader had nothing to do with it. The Electoral College system is the reason Al Gore isn’t our president.
