Spoiler for President

Ralph Nader officially announced his candidacy today on Meet The Press. Ralph told Tim Rustert:

"There's too much power and wealth in too few hands," he said. "They have taken over Washington." "Washington is now corporate occupied territory," Nader said. "There is now a for-sale sign on most agencies and departments. ... Money is flowing in like never before. It means that corporations are saying no to the necessities of the American people. ... Basically, it's question of both parties flunking."

Both parties???? Washington is controlled by ONE party Nader! What reality are you living in? I really just find this stunning. Nader is putting his own ego above the principles he claims to support. If Nader really cares about strengthening third parties -- why doesn't he join a third party? He's not even a member of the Green Party. This is a sad day for progressives. I don't know who is supporting Nader or telling him to run, but I hope you think very carefully about what you're risking: four more years of Bush and the strong liklihood of a more conservative justice replacing O'Connor on the Supreme Court.

Ralph, please run for Senate in a blue state if you think you need to be involved in politics. Don't destroy a second Presidential election.
