Ralph Nader is running for President of the USA

Ralph Nader has thrown his hat in the ring for the 2008 Presidential elections. This will be his 5th time running for President (1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008) and some say that he was the reason that Albert Gore didn't clinch the Presidency in 2000. What does this mean for the Republican and Democratic contendors if anything? He is probably good for 1-4% of the vote which could just tip the balance of power.
This is already an exciting race for President, it now gets more interesting. Question of the week....Will Bloomberg also run for President as an independent in 2008?????

His campaign in 2000 cost Al Gore the election. He claimed he was in it against corporate interest and because he cared about the environment. I think he may have been on the Green Party ticket, and he basically deprived America of the greenest president we could’ve had. And someone who I don’t believe would have made a lot of the mistakes that unfortunately we’ve had to live with from President Bush.

I don’t know what he’s up to other than seeking attention or some other personal motivation, or maybe with maybe being unwitting about it. He truly is helping the Republicans because clearly, that’s what his candidacy would mean and I think it’s regrettable.
