Ralph - Just Say No

From AP, via the AZ Rep -
Ralph Nader could be poised for another third party presidential campaign.

The consumer advocate will appear on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday to announce whether he will launch another White House bid. Nader kicked off his 2004 presidential run on the show.
I ask this to Mr. Nader as someone who has admired much of his work through the years:

Mr. Nader -

Are you a jaw-droppingly arrogant egomaniac, or are you simply nuts?

Hasn't the country suffered enough because of your hubris?

If you had a snowball's chance in Phoenix (in July!) of winning in the fall it would be one thing. However, the only thing you can do is take votes away from the eventual Democratic nominee.

On Sunday, when you sit down with Tim Russert, tell him whatever you need to to salve your ego - tell him it was a mistake, tell him you hit your head and were delusional when you agreed to appear on the show, tell him it's all part of an early and elaborate April Fool's joke, but tell him anything other than that you are running for President again.
