No Nader, Please!!

Erstwhile consumer advocate, present Democratic nemesis, Ralph Nader was on CNN this morning basically confirming what he has been hinting for a while, that he is gearing up for yet another run for the White House.
This is not good news for those who blame Nader for saddling us with G.W. Bush in 2000 and 2004. Might Nader ensure that we will see President John McCain inaugurated next January?
Nader rails against the corporations and rightly so. He also condemns Clinton and Obama for taking money from corporations. Running an effective campaign costs millions. All major politicians and, I suspect, Nader himself, has to take money from corporations because, as bank robber Willie Sutton allegedly said when asked why he robbed banks, "That's where the money is!"
Nader emerges, locust like, every four years to rail against corporate-politicaal coziness. He needs to do the ground work between the elections, not when elections loom ahead.
