Editors Judge Return of the 'Nader Effect' With only 16 days until the election, NPR's Liane Hansen asks political editors Kathie Obradovich, D.J. Tice and Ken Bunting how voters in the hotly contested states of Iowa, Minnesota and Washington state are receiving the candidates. Ralph Nader, who is on the ballot in all three states, may have an impact after all. Kathie Obradovich is the political editor for The Des Moines Register, D.J. Tice is the state political editor for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Ken Bunting is the executive editor of The Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
