Nader: "They should be landsliding Bush."
Advertisements [?]
"John Kerry has got to get loose," Nader said. "He cannot allow political consultants to put handcuffs on his mind and his imagination. He's got to stop talking Senate-ese and be the old John Kerry I knew 23 years ago."

Appearing on CNN's "Crossfire," Nader defended his decision to run as an independent despite a torrent of criticism from Democrats who claim he will siphon votes from Kerry and help re-elect Bush. Many Democrats blame Nader for taking votes from Al Gore (news - web sites) in 2000 and ensuring Bush's narrow electoral victory.

"The Democrats should just stop whining and go to work," Nader said. "They should be landsliding Bush."
