…In a video interview, Nader said Bloomberg’s money would make it possible for him to take a stand against the two-party system…

“I’d like to see Bloomberg run. I’d like to see Jim Hightower run. I’d like to see Bill McKibben run. I’d like to see the champion of single-payer health care, Dr. Quentin Young, run,” Nader said.


Ralph Nader ran for President of the United States with the Green Party, and more recently as an independent candidate. You can keep up with Nader’s thoughts on the world at:

    Yes, that’s pretty much what I have heard and read. No one is willing to throw themself under the truck. I don’t think this means there won’t be a Left opponent in the general. And I don’t mean the Greens. But I also think if the Occupy movement takes off, that may suck the energy out of a potential Left presidential campaign?

    Does this mean that Nader has been unable to identify any candidates willing to primary Obama from the left?
