The Nader factor. Actually I think Nader serves an important role in politics. But, I don't think he has a snowball's chance unless something big happens at home that completely and utterly undermines both the Dems and Reps. I'm talking something huge. Like multiple attacks in a campaign year. Or some really big environmental shift that makes the environment THE biggest and only reason to vote. Something that really shakes us to our core. Given that this big shake up would be very unpleasant, I hope that day never comes.

In the meantime Nader is there to remind us that this isn't a nation of two ideas. And I think that is important.

Oh I didn't mean to suggest that I thought he could WIN, but rather to bring up the question of whether he is taking votes away from Kerry (or some from both as he suggests in the article). I hate to think of what kind of cataclysmic event would have to occur for him to actually win (and I am in Minnesota - land of the people who are ashamed of Jesse Ventura!)

I think it's arrogant for the democrats to want him to drop out of the race. It doesn't matter who Nader will supposedly take votes away from, he has the right to run if he chooses.

Yep, I agree.
