Howard Dean rings in on Ralph Nader's candidacy on Blog for America. I watched Nader on Meet the Press and I agree with him on a couple of thing. Nader is correct that the “liberal intelligentsia”, as he calls them, that oppose his campaign agree with him on many issues and that Americans should be able to vote for the candidate with whom they agree. Unfortunately, he is also correct that voters are hostages of a two-party, winner-take-all Electoral College system. I'm glad Nader supports organizations like the Center for Voting and Democracy that are trying to change the system but until we have something like Instant Runoff Voting, votes for Nader really are votes for Bush. With that, I'm joining Calpundit's Ignore Nader campaign.
