It looks like Ralph Nader is going to toss his hat into the ring. Good for him! Some naysayers are already calling it a lost cause, but I'm not so sure. Ralph seems to be drawing support from both the progressive left AND the hardcore right. In fact, I know several republicans who want him to run, and have already pledged money to his campaign. Ralph just may be the man to challenge George Bush and unite this sharply divided nation behind a common political banner.
With a call for a 100% income tax on the evil rich, Ralph Nader is the thinking man's Howard Dean. But not only is he a proud socialist, he's also strong on national defense. We all remember how he bravely took on the automobile industry to get seatbelts and airbags put in all our cars. Imagine if he applied that same resolve and fierce determination to the war on terror! Osama would never leave his cave, for fear of having his skinny Yemeni ass sued right back to the stone ages. Al Qaeda would be buried under so much litigation, that they wouldn't have time to carry out any more terrorist attacks! What a wonderful world it would be.
Most importantly, Ralph has the powerful endorsements of both Michael Moore and Phil Donahue. If Dennis Kucinich drops out (god forbid), I just may be inclined to throw my support behind Nader for President.
