Nader's comment that you can't build a third party by losing nerve is
well-directed against a minority of Green activitists, but possibly more
so against those who voted Green in 2000 and regretted not voting
Democratic later.  A number of friends in the academic world did that
and will surely vote Democratic this time, whoever might be the nominee.

Nader himself should realize that another way not to build a third party
is to preempt the nominations procedures in this way.  I hate to see any
of them into the corporate-driven extension of the presidential campaign
for such a long and expensive stretch.  It's about as consistent as his
driving to the press conference in a Corvair or a Pinto.
