    In 2000, without Nader on the ballot I would never have bothered to vote in the election. In the end it didn't matter as Gore carried my state.

    Now, of course, I realize two things, first, that that election mattered, and two, the Gore is a much better politician than I initially assumed. Maybe he needed the years in the wilderness to figure that out.

    However, I, and I knew at least another two dozen, mostly young, mostly left-wing folks, who never would have voted in 2000 except for Nader. And many of those, once in the ballot booth, voted for Gore anyway.

    Nader sent them to the polls, and they voted for Gore.
