What about the possibility that Gore will be more successful in dismantling programs because there won't be any Dem/liberal opposition? Worked nicely for welfare reform, clear-cutting, mass incarceration, etc. Doug
Wrong binary. Nader will not be elected, my herculean powers notwithstanding. The question is whether Nader's ideas change public opinion. If he is dismissed on lesser evil logic, the likelihood of lasting influence diminishes.
A better vote for Nader encourages the next President to do more. Anybody in a state where the Gore/Bush difference is more than ten points on November 2 should vote for Ralph.
