28. With all respect, I think that's baloney
If Nader is "completely in line with traditional Democratic values," why isn't he working WITH and WITHIN the party rather than opposing it?

If Nader wants to be "an additional voice adding constructive policy discussion," why isn't he using his voice WITH and WITHIN the party rather than opposing it?

If Nader wants to defeat the Chimp, why is he running against John Kerry?

The country IS divided about 50-50. The voting systems themselves are untrustworthy. Every percentage point matters. Does Ralph Nader not realize these facts, or not care?
