Nader: Don’t Let Gravel Say What He Wants to Say

Ralph Nader tells Mike Gravel to get out of the presidential race, at least in this satire. A lot of liberals remain angry at the spoiler role played by Nader in the 2000 presidential race, which suggests to me that very few of them are going to be buying what he or any other left-wing third-party candidate sells in 2008 (few did in 2004). It also suggests that a third-party candidate on the right who did well enough to tip the election to the Democrats wouldn't do much for his reputation among conservative Republicans. Perhaps this is why even Ron Paul seems to be thinking twice about endorsing the man who would pose the strongest third-party challenge from John McCain's right.
