Ralph Nader is going to run for president again.

Christ in a bottle. Hasn’t this guy learned anything yet?

Nader, 73, said most people are disenchanted with the Democratic and Republican parties due to a prolonged Iraq war and a shaky economy. The consumer advocate also blamed tax and other corporate-friendly policies under the Bush administration that he said have left many lower- and middle-class people in debt.

"You take that framework of people feeling locked out, shut out, marginalized and disrespected," he said. "You go from Iraq, to Palestine to Israel, from Enron to Wall Street, from Katrina to the bumbling of the Bush administration, to the complicity of the Democrats in not stopping him on the war, stopping him on the tax cuts."

You know, it’s not that I disagree with what he is saying. However, this is the egomaniac that PUT Bush in the White House IN THE FIRST PLACE! Ralph Nader shoulders a significant part of the blame for the last 8 years, personally! And he has the gall to then go and complain about Bush?! GMAFB.

My thinking is that the Democrats will settle on Obama very soon, and Obama will run away with the general election. Yes, there still are hopeless idealists that will vote for Nader, even though he has zero chance of winning. He has zero chances of carrying even a single state! However, given the results of his run in 2000 and the fact that Obama will have a very commanding lead in the general, I don’t think Nader can successfully throw the election to the Republicans this time. However, who knows what might happen? I certainly didn’t foresee that whole John Kerry Swiftboat thing, and his wimpy response to it. There certainly is a chance something can happen to upset the apple cart, and the less unknowns there are, the better I will feel about it.
