on Lawrence O'donnell's fantastical MSNBC Show "The Last Word." (The Ed Show was also not to be missed. Both of these guys are up there with Olbermann).
Nader suggested that the left wing come up with a primary candidate to challenge Obama in the upcoming election- not necessarily to beat him but to create a political force that has to consider. Presently, he is obviously taking the liberal base for granted because where else are they going to go?
The response to this by the great Alan Grayson was more guarded, and upbeat, He expressed no interest in being that candidate, but felt that Obama could acquire spine and win back the liberal base.
It is heartening to have O'Donnell and Ed (and of course Rachel). I remember just a few short years ago, back with Bush/Gore, there was no one - nada on MSNBC. Only relentless parroting of "the American people want to move on" rather than see Al Gore fight for his presidency..
If we're getting f*ked in the a*s by the president everyone fought hard to put in office, at least we now have a voice on cable news.
I just want to add that the heroism of Assange is inspiring after 10 years of helplessness and frustration.
