    I also support Nader, although I voted for McKinney. I think the Barack Obama administration is scary. He will take office with an overwhelming approval rating and his only media opposition are idiots like Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter. No matter what this guy does he will be praised. This makes him way more dangerous than McCain! Am I the only one that sees what’s going on here. I praise Nader for his determination.

    You raise a good point shiitake, though it’s more of a negative of the Fourth Estate and it’s increasing lack of independence from the events and people it covers. Our mainstream media has really gotten worse and worse over the past years, and they’ll only investigate less now that someone who is closer to their political ideologies is in office.

    Already we see it in action as Obama is requesting more and more bailouts (AIG and the big three carmakers), even though it’s been proven that they do not work! As my alter ego said, bailouts beget bailouts!

    But yes, I too praise Nader for his work and determination, but now he needs to apply some much needed pragmatism to his strategy too. Pure idealism, though full of valor, does not always lead to results.
