    Nader showed up at a book signing?  I call that real chutzpah considering what he did.

    And thanks for quoting Professer A.  He is a must read for me.

      ...maybe in the NYT or WaPo, described Gore's greeting as gracious and very friendly, pausing to rise and shake hands with Ralph, thanking him for coming.

      The first things I read are dKos, Altercation, and TPM. I read more than those, but they alone will make you more informed than 99% of the population.

      Enough chitchat. Spread out! you mugs, and get back to woik!

        in my estimation.

        How hard it must have been for him to forgive and forget what Nader cost the nation. I'm not sure I could've been as cordial.

        ...this is one more reason why Gore would (will) be a great president.

        I, too would have found it hard not to snark in Ralph's face. But that would alienate part of the green community, which is actually an ally of ours, (when they aren't emotionally led astray).

        As it was, Al Gore made it into a very constructive moment.

        The 2000 election/SCOTUS result is still enough to make ya tear up. We lost out on a visionary intellect and a gentleman, to wind up with a pigheaded, kleptocratic, frat boy from a degenerate genetic line. There is a terrible, terrible lesson there for our nation, and even as W plunges into Nixonian approval ratings, I wonder how well we will learn that lesson.

          It seems like a lot of us only think in terms of what/who we hate, not what we want or need. The right wing still harbors a lot of hatred for Gore. They will dredge it up again, but IMO their kids will cancel them out.

          Older right wing assholes don't get global warming, because "it will cost them money". Their kids get it, because it could cost them their lives.
