Ralph Nader Courts Latino, Black Vote

Republicans cheered and Democrats winced when consumer advocate Ralph Nader announced that he'd throw his hat into the 2004 Presidential race — this time, as an independent candidate with no party support. Many Democrats believe his Green Party candidacy cost Al Gore the White House in 2000. Nader talks to NPR's Tavis Smiley about why he's decided to run again, and why he would be the best candidate for voters of color.
