Ralph Nader

GUEST: RALPH NADER *Presidential Candidate for the Green Party *Longtime consumer advocate Ralph Nader says this time he's serious about running for President. The longtime consumer advocate and anti-corporate crusader, who spent less than $5000 during his 1996 presidential campaign, vows to raise "millions of dollars" and use "thousands of volunteers" to get his Green Party message out to voters. Right now, his name is on the ballot in twenty states; his goal is to increase that number to forty-five by election day. Running on a platform of universal health care, affordable day care and protecting the environment, and against "corporate welfare" and multinational companies, Nader could well draw some voters away from the Democratic Party.
