I'm a democrat, I'd love to go and throw tomatoes at him. All you conservatives should go shake his hand, he helped out your side big time. The smartest thing Bush could do in 4 years is donate millions to Nader so that he can undermine the left base again(but you didn't hear that from me)

<< All you conservatives should go shake his hand >>

The only worthy thing he ever did in his life was split the vote!!!!!

Sounds like you are bitter because Nader could do what Al Gore was unable to do. Win votes!

You are really opening up a can of worms, since Gore garnered several hundred thousand more votes than President Bush. Nader got just enough to torpedo the Gore campaign, but not nearly enough to get federal matching funds next time around, much less any chance at carrying even a single state.

On the other hand the Ds might consider finding a candidate who isn't a lair, flip-flopper and who sticks to his platform's core beliefs rather than middle-fingering unions and the middle class. Then you wouldn't need to worry about splitters like Nader. But of course it wasn't Gore's fault in any way.

Nader spoke @ my university last year for 15,000 $US. A student asked whether he would donate any of that money back in support of need-blind admissions.

Nader said he would donate a 'large' ammount to some scholarship fund, but declined to say how much no matter how pressed for a straigth answer.

Tee: yeah you are right, we should never let another party join the race for the presidency, that would be too much like a democracy </sarcasm>

If believing that makes you feel better then more power to you. The truth is that if Nader wasn't running then most of those people wouldn't have voted at all. Assuming that if Nader had not run that they would all become Gore votes is folly. Of course, if you are a Gore supporter then thinking probably isn't your strong suit anyway ;).

Nader is the biggest piece of garbage in the world. If it wasnt for him, our gas milage would be much better, and the Corvair would still be around.

Intake77,

I believe you have short-circuited. If not, please expand on your statement. I'm dying to learn how Nader has kept automobile fuel efficient down.

Kingham:

I never said I was a Gore supporter, so you Rush-esque arrogant flippance is misplaced. The exit polls of Nader voters showed in no uncertain terms that enough of them would have voted for Gore to turn the election (which was, in the electoral vote, not even particularly close).

What did I say that tended to make you think I was against third parties?
