Ralph Nader

Since the buzz yesterday morning was the announcement by that he will again attempt a run at President, my thoughts:

  • Ralph Nader is generally blamed for taking votes away from VP Al Gore in 2000, ensuring a victory for George W. Bush.
  • Mr. Nader's views are closer to the Left than to any candidate on the Right (past or present).
  • Sens. Clinton and Obama might be concerned of his campaign, excepting: in the last 8 years, what had Mr. Nader done to influence his credibility with the millions of voters who came of age since 2000? Little, I believe.

While Mr. Nader will certainly pull votes from the Democrat candidate, I doubt he will ever be as much of an impact as he was in 2000.
