He’s 74. He’s running for president as an independent – again. Even after two earlier, disastrous attempts at the top job, Nader is having another go.
Isn’t it enough that he helped give us George W. Bush as president? Now, he wants to give us John McCain.
Know what I think? I think Nader needs to get in touch with his Inner Geezer. Like many aging warriors, he’s trying to prove he still has a stinger. The need to still wear a badge, to still have clout, to spill testosterone – that need dies hard in some men.
Hang it up, Ralph. Show some grace. We don’t need two old white guys running.
Footnote: NBC political analyst Chuck Todd made a profound observation on Hillary Clinton’s cheap (and dated) Xerox line in the Texas debate. He said, “I don’t Xerox. I copy, cut and paste.”
Time marches on.
