C'mon, Ralph Nader. Just because you can run for president doesn't mean that you should.
What's the point of a Nader candidacy? "Because I got things done," he says. He's right on that point, of course. Maybe I'm still bitter about the 2000 election (you all remember that one, right?), but Ralph Nader certainly did something to Al Gore's campaign.
Just imagine America today without the presidency of 'Dubya.' It sounds reassuring, doesn't it? Judging by the voices on our blog, Hillary Clinton certainly isn't the most admired politician in the Democratic party; then again, I'm not completely sold on Barack Obama either (no free sandwiches from Nate after saying that one!) The problem with Ralph Nader is this: He doesn't matter.
Oh yeah. For all those who don't like John McCain because he's too old to be president (face it: The fact that he can't lift his arms over his head is troublesome), listen to this: Ralph Nader turns 74 on Feb. 27. That's, like, three years old than McCain, isn't it? Well, two-and-a-half. But still.
Ralph Nader couldn't win a UISG election (more on those later). But if he did, he should run on the 'I think I'm gonna Ralph'-ticket.
