    WASHINGTON - Independent presidential hopeful Ralph Nader (news - web sites) thinks Democrat John Kerry (news - web sites) would be a better candidate and pick up more votes if "he's jogged, nudged and challenged," by third-party candidates like himself.


    "But if he doesn't, we'll be happy to pick up those votes," Nader said told CNN's "Late Edition" on Sunday, pledging to stay in the presidential race until the Nov. 2 election.


    Democrats blame Nader, the Green Party candidate in 2000, for Al Gore (news - web sites)'s narrow loss to Republican George W. Bush, arguing that the then-vice president would have benefited from the thousands of votes that instead went to Nader.


    Nader blames Gore and notes, among other things, Gore's loss in his home state of Tennessee.

    Nader is an egomaniacal loser.
