Ralph Nader is once again mounting an independent presidential bid, vowing to fight â€œcorporate greed, corporate power, corporate control.â€
He wonâ€™t matter this time. For one thing, itâ€™s not a good year for third-party candidates, because thereâ€™s a surprisingly high level of voter satisfaction with both major party candidates.
Moreover, the premise of Naderâ€™s past runs â€” the two parties have the same agenda â€” has been proved demonstrably false. As Barack Obama said in dismissing Naderâ€™s run: â€œHe thought that there was no difference between Al Gore and George Bush, and eight years later I think people realize that Ralph did not know what he was talking about.â€
