Draft Clark founders are working on an anti-Nader group?
Last week I saw a story on Inside Politics about a group set up specifically to fight Nader, and one of the people in the office looked a lot like John Hlinko from the Draft Clark Movement. Can anyone verify this?

1. I love Clark even more for that.

2. I hope Clark is considered for Veep
although I'd be just as happy with Edwards.

3. What a waste of time.
Couldn't they put their energy towards waking up the other half of America that didn't vote in 2000?

Nah... It's much easier to have an "enemy."

4. The other half of America doesn't vote, they are completely apathetic
as they have been since Watergate and Vietnaem showed them the power they had.

6. Right. That 50% doesn't vote because they chose not to. Period.

5. Both can be achieved
Look at what Howard Dean is doing with DFA, and look at the other 527 efforts to register people. However, there will ALWAYS be a segmant of Americans that don't vote.

7. You're right, DemsUnite. And besides
Nader again called for -- eloquently by the way --the impeachement of W, something few prominent politicians have done. What's more, he can, and has, brought up progressive issues in a campaign largely devoid of them besides what Dennis discusses.

8. Nader can still raise those issues, but he does need to run for POTUS
GET him to speak at the convention if he wants to advance these issues, and give DK a chance to speak.
