2008 Election Footnote (at best)

So Ralph Nader (who turns 74 years old this Wednesday) is gonna run again -- for the 5th time -- as a third party candidate? Someone should clue him in, that he has less of a chance than even Mike Gravel. At this point, Nader's doing it only to stroke his ego. Pity - I used to respect him (in the 1960s).

I suspect his financial backers are (almost exclusively) members of the Republic party, who see his spoiler role as the only way to elect (warmonger) John McCain in November (unless Clinton somehow gets the nomination, in which case they'll have an easy way to mobilize their base).

Someone please queue "Mr. T" to utter his trademark line.
