Nader Blew It !

Green Party Rejects Nader, Nominates Cobb as Presidential Nominee:

Democratic Party activists were breathing a sigh of relief on Saturday after Ralph Nader, the consumer activist blamed for spoiling Democrat Al Gore’s bid for the presidency in 2000, lost a bid for a third party endorsement on Saturday.

The Green Party snubbed Nader’s bid for backing, the Chicago Tribune reported, denying him access to 22 state ballots where the Green Party will run.

Nader's decision to publicly break from the Greens last winter and then later solicit party support for his independent run cost him precious backing from the party's grass roots, who were more interested in a long-term strategy of growth.
