The Wages of Naderism

That egomaniacal and absurd Ralph Nader is considering another run for president makes sense to me. But why John Nicols would write above this idea in such a favorable manner is beyond me. If you think that what the left needs to pursue is a Leninist strategy of deliberately bringing about Republican victories then, fine, cheer Nader on. But otherwise, any conceivable assemblage of people and organization would have a more constructive impact in the context of a primary campaign -- even a losing primary campaign can shift discussion in the direction of its leader's views.
