I wouldn't quite say that Nader pre-emptively snubbed the Greens,
though I do think he should have gone to the wire fighting for the
nomination...if only as a way to build a national framework for his
own campaign.

However, the GPUS leadership was determined to thwart his nomination
and he decided that it was not worthwhile to play a game by its
ever-shifting rules.  One story repeatedly widely is that once he
withdrew, some of the noisiest pro-McKinney GPUS leaders simply backed
away from the work needed to build her campaign.  Heading off Nader at
the pass had been their only concern.  There are also related rumors
that McKinney's having serious problems bucking the Obama tsunami in
terms of raising money and recruiting the volunteers needed for a
nationl campaign.
