25. Lieberman and Nader have both sold out.
Lieberman is willing to compromise on individual liberties "for the greater good" (that good being the supposed safety of Israel but in fact it is the lining of the pockets of some very wealthy families within the country of Israel). Nader is willing to compromise on individual liberties "for the greater good" (recall that he wanted the nation to suffer through W. believing that it would lead to a turn to the left---that is jackass politics practiced from a penthouse).
