I'm so tired of hearing people talk about how Gore is being hurt by Nader. Who cares? Is Nader running for Gore? What is wrong with everybody? Nader is running for President and should do everything thing he can to win on his own. Just as Bush and Gore should, not to mention all the other independents out there.
I could care less if Al loses because of Nader. If it proves to our politicians that the people are fed up with the current party structure I'm all for it. If in four years a huge influx of independents come in and steal gobs of senate and house seats, I'll be cheering them along.
I happen to believe that Al Gore sparked all this nonsense off last week and since has had his people politicking for him all over the place. It's ridiculous. I hope he loses just for trying to play like that. Vote swapping and fear mongering is not what a good leader is supposed to encourage...
Nader is standing up for his campaign. If he were to cave in and try to help Gore out I would consider him spineless. Besides, Nader, last time I checked, wasn't a Democrat, so why exactly, would he give a flying f*ck? If you choose to answer at all, please don't try the "he should care about the overall good" nonsense. Everybody knows that's not how politics works.
