Bill Richardson this morning on Ralph <$NoAd$> Nader
âItâs his personal vanity because he has no movement. Nobodyâs backing him,â New Mexico Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson said Sunday in advance of Naderâs announcement.
âThe Greens arenât backing him. His friends urge him not to do it. Itâs all about himself,â Richardson told âFox News Sunday.â
âNow, Ralphâs made some great contributions to consumer issues over the years, but clearly itâs not going to help us,â he said. âI donât think heâll have a sizable impact, but itâs terrible if he goes ahead because itâs about him. Itâs about his ego. Itâs about his vanity and not about a movement that supposedly he headed for many years very effectively.â
A more generous version of my thoughts.
Visit Nader's new website to see some amazingly comical sophistry
about how his being in the race will make it more likely that a Democrat will be elected president.
