LA Weekly: News: Ralph’s Dark Side

An interesting point of view about why Nader should not run and how far he has fallen from the ideals he claims to stand for. The part about the groups he has alligned himself with are frightening.

But Nader rejected the MoveOn folks’ offer, since he considers any opposition to his running “censorship.” Nader, of course, has a perfect right to run for president if he wants to. Those of his friends and former supporters who like myself urged him not to run were not exercising any power of censorship, but deploying wisdom in the service of shared political goals. And it is wisdom and a sense of American realities that are absent from Nader’s decision to run again this year.
