    Most likely, Kerry is going to smile and wave at the camara, then bitch and complain and beg Nader to drop out behind closed doors.

    Reaching into left field for a possibility: Kerry/Nader ticket?

    Nader hates both parties. It's not like Kerry can bribe Nader with a Cabinet post or anything. (The thought of Secretary of Labor Ralph Nader scares the crap out of me though.) I don't see what could possibly come out of this meeting.

    I'm not entirely sure, but didn't Gore meet with Nader during the 2000 election as well?

    Kerry/Nader? What a laugh. They would sink like a freaking stone.

    I think it should be an interesting discussion. I'm curious how Kerry will react to Nader. This seems sort of unprecedented, to rivals meeting in a public forum with the joint goal of perhaps vocalizing their shared reasons for unseating the current administration. Is it?

    Since most polls seem to indicate that Nader is taking about 5% fo the vote from Kerry and Kerry lags Bush in most but not all of the polls by 3 - 10 points, maybe Kerry will ask Nader to join the ticket.

    It is a thought, but I doubt it only because I don't think Kerry will overlook the fact that many of those that vote democratic are really more aligned with Republicans in their views, they only vote democratic because that is how they have been "programmed" for decades.

    Take my parents as good examples:

    Q: Mom, dad, do you believe in abortion?
    A: Hell NO!

    Q: Do you believe in gays in the military?
    A: Hell NO!

    Q: Do you believe in welfare?
    A: Hell NO!

    Q: Do you believe in rampant lawsuits?
    A: Hell NO!

    Q: Do you believe that "One nation under God" is okay in the pledge of alliegance??
    A: Hell YES!

    Q: Who ya gonna vote for on election day?
    A: Whomever is on the democratic ticket.

    That is typical of not just my parents, but many older, conservative democrats that have been brainwashed over the decades into thinking that the democrats "are more caring".

    That sounds like a whole lot of opinion and very little fact.
    Not saying there isn't ANY truth to it, just that it is quite avague generalization.
