  •  I am pretty sure he beat Nader (3.00)
    so I guess he knew what to do with Nader.

    •  Bush beat Nader, too... (none)
      But Nader didn't cost Bush the Presidency.

        •  With all due respect to your wonderful diary (none)
          Nader is, has been and will always be anti-corporate.  Therefore....

          •  Though he attacked Gore because he (none)
            had already stated outright that for people to flock to his (Nader's) ideas, things would have to get worse before they could get better.

            Are things bad enough for you now, Nader?

          •  So? (none)
            He still helped put the most pro corporate Pres. in history inoffice.  In the end, that will be his most enduring legacy.  Hope he's proud.
            •  Fuck Nader. (none)
              And Gore knew what to do with him. Beat him.
              He also knew what to do with Bush. Beat him.

              And he did not lose the debates. He lost to the media which always hated him far more than they hated Clinton let alone Bush. But noone can fight against the echo chamber. Noone. Nixon couldn't do it Bush Sr couldn't do it Gore couldn't do it and now Bush Jr cannot do it.
              The media is the superpower of politics in America, that's a fact of life. They create conventional wisdom and voters are so stupid they always buy the conventional wisdom no matter how untrue it is.

          •  Nader (none)
            is a willing tool of Bush and the worst of corporate America.  Few people have done more to help corporations and screw people over as Ralph Nader.  

            It takes a second to wreck it. It takes time to build.
