Hillary on Nader, Nader on Hillary
When it comes to damaging the hopes of electing a Democrat to the White House this November, Hillary Clinton (and he companion Bill), are doing a great job of boosting Republican candidate John McCain.
Still, Hillary was quick to point the finger when Ralph Nader decided to run again:
“Obviously it’s not helpful to whoever our Democratic nominee is. But it’s a free country,” she said. “I don’t know what party he’ll run on. Where did he run on last time? Does anybody remember? Was it on the Green Party? Well, you know, his being on the Green Party prevented Al Gore from being the greenest president we could have had and I think that’s really unfortunate. I think we paid a big price for it.”
And does Ralph repay the favor? No he defends her right to run.
"I know something about this. Here’s my advice: Don’t listen to people when they tell you not to run anymore. That’s just political bigotry."
Who then is more in the service of democracy?
