    Nader Wins Endorsement From Reform Party
    By SAM HANANEL, Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON - Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader (news - web sites) has been endorsed by the national Reform Party, giving him ballot access in seven states, including Florida and Michigan, party leaders announced Wednesday.

    Nader spokesman Kevin Zeese said Nader welcomes the support but plans to continue running as an independent. He said Nader would decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept the ballot lines in each state.

    "This shows that Nader can garner support from across the political spectrum, including conservatives who supported Bush in 2000," Zeese said. "The naysayers who said Nader could only get liberal votes are being proven wrong. Conservatives are upset with Bush and looking for an alternative."

    Zeese said Nader spoke to Reform Party leaders via conference call Monday night and asked for their support.

    I thought Nader might drop out so that he wouldn't get Bush reelected. Guess I was wrong.

    It's interesting that the Reform party selected him. What are they reforming now? The market economy?

    That ought to completely deplete the ranks of that party.

    I don't think Nader cares if Kerry wins any more than Bush.

    I find it funny that insein calls Nader an idiot. I would love to see you get into a debate with Ralph. He would grind you up and spit you out. Just because the man is a flaming liberal and an egomaniac doen't mean he isn't extremely intelligent. Christ, he graduated summa cum laude from Princeton, dork.

    You can be summa cum laude and still be an idiot.

    Maybe from some fraudulent, bullshit internet college, not Princeton. Those bastards have always been fanatically intellectually competitive. Hey, no offense. Nader would smear me in a debate as well, say over gun control, even though I believe I'm correct. The man is brilliant; you should read some of his books.
