When Terry McAuliffe says this...

"We can't afford to have Ralph Nader in the race... This is about the future of our country. If you care about the environment, if you care about job growth, you've got to support the Democratic nominee. So I'm urging everybody to talk to Ralph Nader."

... what he means is that he thinks the American people are too stupid to select their President on their own. Did it ever occur to Mr. McAuliffe that the people who voted for Nader KNEW that they were voting in a close election and that they chose to give their vote to Mr. Nader even though that might mean that Mr. Bush would eventually win? Democrats want to deny the American people this choice - because, again, they apparently don't trust the people to vote in their own best interest.

I think Mr. Nader put it best when asked about an anti-Nader web site, calling it...

"[A] contemptuous statement against Democracy, against freedom, against more voices and choices for the American people... It is an offense to deny millions of people who may want to vote for our candidacy an opportunity to vote for our candidacy... The liberal intelligentsia... has allowed its party to become a captive of corporate interests."

Why don't the Democrats spend time trying to explain to us why we should vote for Kerry or Edwards instead of Nader, rather than trying (again) to scare their own supporters?
