Dan Keding BS: Nader is coming on Meet the Press now (113* d) RE: BS: Nader is coming on Meet the Press now 24 Feb 08


I think that if Nader wants to run then he should BUT I also think that Nader should have been more active - not just as someone who is pointing out the ills in a very troubled society - but also as someone who has been organizing and starting grass roots political action on a very local level, helping independents and third party candidates win, and stressing the importance of youth in our political theater. I have not seen that from him and it makes me suspect his national motives. I have never said he wasn't a good and honorable man, even good people have egos and are sometimes caught up in their own myths. No one can deny the good he has done in the past and will probably do in the future but that doesn't mean he is the right person at this time in history. I agree with the poster who says that he adds a certain honesty to the campaign that may or may not but hopefully will embolden the Democrats to address some issues they may have otherwise ignored - we'll see.

To be honest the political exchange on this thread has reinforced the reason why I don't usually address forums like this. Too much sarcasm and not enough respect. PDQ, I know about the issues of the day and I have worked on a local level do something about many of them, I was addressing the condescending attitude that was being used toward people whose history in politics and change GG and obviously yourself probably didn't know anything about.
