111. Yes!
That said, I'm both shocked and extremely dissapointed to see the DU place Ralph Nader in the top two slots (!) on this week's conservative idiot list.

Me, too.

I agree that the Democrats have given Bush a pass on entirely too many important issues, and either the Democratic candidate has to distance himself from those mistakess or we can expect only more of the same old thing.

We are supposedly living in a democracy where the free exchange of ideas is valued. IMO, the more voices heard, the better for all of us. I'm glad Kucinich and Sharpton are hanging in there with their campaigns, and I'm glad Ralph Nader is getting into the running. I'm looking forward to seeing who the Greens put in the running also.

If there were no NEED for these voices to be heard... because Democrats were already giving those same voices a hearing... the third party candidates wouldn't be around. The fact is that there is a NEED because the Democrats aren't letting these folks be heard.
