Yesterday I talked about when we might find out whether or not Ralph Nader will run for President in the upcoming election. Yesterday was the 8 year anniversary of when he made his announcement in 2000. The 27th of this month is his birthday. Today I got an email from the Nader Team that I believe gave me the answer. This is almost as exciting as when Jericho was coming back to the WWE. ...
Here is the text from the email I got:
Ralph Nader will be on NBC's Meet the Press with Tim Russert this Sunday, February 24, 2008.
As you know, we've been exploring the possibilities in recent weeks.
And here's one question that keeps coming up:
What's been pulled off the table by the corporatized political machines in this momentous election year?
Cutting the huge, bloated and wasteful military budget, adopting a single payer Canadian-style national health insurance system, impeaching Bush/Cheney, opposing nuclear power - among many others.
Who will pick up these issues and put them back on the table?
Hope you get a chance to tune in to watch Ralph Nader this Sunday on Meet the Press.
Here is the description from the Meet the Press site for this Sundays show.
2004 Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader joins us exclusively this Sunday to talk about whether or not he will enter the 2008 race for the White House. Plus, a political roundtable with insights and analysis on the political future of John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama featuring David Brooks, Jon Meacham, Michele Norris and Chuck Todd.
It looks like we will have our answer Sunday. It looks like the things Ralph Nader needed to run are in place. Pro bono lawyers, enough volunteers, enough money, enough interest in general.
