Nader Gets Things Started

"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American," Nader told the paper in comments published Tuesday. "Whether that will make any difference, I don't know. I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards." CNN

Is Nader trying to get some attention? He does sort of have a point or does he? The Obama people gave some lame statement -- sounds like Nader hit a nerve. I cannot help, but wonder if parts of this statement are true.

And HRC voted for the Iraq resolution to appear tough and less feminine. It's time to get over it.

What a surprise. Nader sees everyone who doesn't share his (mostly unpopular) agenda as corporatist sellouts.

Who cares what the 'most irrelevant man in American' thinks?
