Nader: Sanders Effort Aborted



I voted for Ralph Nader twice when he ran for prez.  The second time was the famous hanging chad election that Bush-II stole.  Many liberals blamed Nader for Gore's loss. 

The truth of that election though was Al Gore never fought for his own voters as he sat back and watched the Republicans take the election.  The suppressed black vote in Florida, where I was living at the time, was massive across the state.  Gore never said much about that stain on democracy.

But in the end - all the Democrats could do was say that the whole sordid affair was Nader's fault - and sadly many of those same liberals still say it today.

It's sad to see Bernie turn into a sniveling shepherd for Hillary.  It's enough to make a person cynical.....
