Fresh from victories in the Florida and South Carolina primaries, with the vanquished Rudy Giuliani handing him his endorsement and apparently Ahnold doing the same, and all the momentum in the world going into Super Tuesday from which he is all but certain to emerge as the Republican nominee, it seems things couldn’t get any better for John McCain… until they just did.
That’s right: Ralph Nader wants to ensure that no matter who the Democrats nominate, John McCain will be elected President, as Nader announced his own presidential exploratory committee.
Let’s just say that while the perfect is the enemy of the good… the enemy of Ralph Nader is my friend, and leave it at that. It’s a free country, and Ralph is certainly free to run as a spoiler to ensure Republican victories. But let’s all be damned if we let him pretend that he is doing anything else.
