Nader gets bump

Bad news for Kerry

Nader Wins Endorsement From Reform Party

WASHINGTON - Independent Ralph Nader, reviled by some Democrats for his presidential bid, was endorsed Wednesday by the national Reform Party, giving him ballot access in at least seven states, including the battlegrounds of Florida and Michigan.

The Kerry camp can't be pleased. Nader cost Gore the election in Florida last time.

If you're willing to ignore... (Below threshold)
J.B. Nicholson-Owens:

If you're willing to ignore the thousands of disenfranchised would-be Democratic party voters who were illegally and unethically kept from voting in Florida in 2000 and 2002 (and probably will be again in November), and if you're willing to ignore how Gore's platform was so similar to Bush's that even the moderator of the so-called "debates", Jim Lehrer, commented on how they might want to take some time to distinguish themselves from one another (something that the Democrats appear willing to do again this time), and if you're willing to ignore the actions and involvement of the US Supreme Court, and if you're willing to pretend that it is any candidate's job to make sure one of their opponents is elected, then perhaps Nader did put Bush in the White House.

But then, since the Democrats did all this and never challenged the voting system that twice left so many of their supporters unable to vote, Gore put Bush in the White House. So apparently Gore wanted Bush to win, Bush wanted Bush to win, and those are the only two candidates being talked about in this duopoly. So Bush "won".

What... the... frell?... (Below threshold)

What... the... frell?

If JB is willing to ignore the continuous lawsuits the Gore camp introduced, which would have disenfranchised thousands of voters so that selected voters would be overrepresented, I suppose that all makes sense.

On the other hand, if one looked at the states that Gore lost by a small fraction, and the percentage of votes to Nader that those states had, he might have a different perspective.
