20. It does not matter.
If Nader or Cobb runs this year...it's their choice to do so.

No need to discourage the democratic process.

If the eventual nominee of the Democratic party cannot win this years GE, then the fault lies solely on the party and candidate.

No more "blaming" third-parties...that's just ridiculous.

If the Dems and their nominee loses due to attrition, obviously, the platform was not convincing for third-party voters.
