I have two points to make about Nader and them I'm done. Mind you, I basically agree with Nader's positions and supported his candidacy in 2000.
1) I agree with Cal Pundit that the blog world should basically ignore him.
2) Notwithstanding my support of his policies, I am upset that he is running. I think that this year, progressives should ally with mainstream democrats and ensure that Bush is removed from office. It's just that simple. We will have an easier time advancing the progressive agenda with Bush out of office. As a leader of the progressive movement, Nader should recognize this, and he should not be attempting to advance his own interests at some potential cost to the country.
