The SOB has made it official. For what reasons, I have no idea.
P.S. Did I call it or what?
P.P.S. Dave Winer pushes back on the conventional wisdom:
If Nader is going to win the election for Dubya, then now’s the time to fix the bug in the process. Kerry isn’t nominated yet. Think. What’s the problem that Nader exploits? What’s so fixed about our political system that a minority independent candidate, who likely won’t be able to register in many states, is going to spoil it for.. who exactly is he going to spoil it for? Think. Is this the America you imagined when you were a kid? Why can’t we make it better? Why can’t we have a dozen people running for President?
Good questions all. Now would certainly seem to be a good moment for big thinking about how our democracy should work.
