Ralph Nader will appear on Meet the Press on Sunday morning, the same platform he used to announce his 2004 run for the Presidency. It is not much of a stretch to predict that Nader is likely going in front of the nation to declare his official intentions of running for the White House. Nader has been through this before and understands how to best use this opportunity in front of a national audience. By waiting until he has a national audience to announce his bid he will quickly be able to follow up the announcement with his platform and reasons for running.
Nader launched his exploratory committee late last month just after Dennis Kucinich exited from the race. Once Kucinich dropped out of the race to focus on his Ohio Congressional seat, Nader saw a void that needed to be filled.
From an email:
Ralph Nader will be on NBC’s Meet the Press with Tim Russert this Sunday, February 24, 2008.
As you know, we’ve been exploring the possibilities in recent weeks.
And here’s one question that keeps coming up:
What’s been pulled off the table by the corporatized political machines in this momentous election year?
Cutting the huge, bloated and wasteful military budget, adopting a single payer Canadian-style national health insurance system, impeaching Bush/Cheney, opposing nuclear power – among many others.
Who will pick up these issues and put them back on the table?
Hope you get a chance to tune in to watch Ralph Nader this Sunday on Meet the Press.
Please tell your friends and family.
And thank you for your ongoing and generous support.
The Nader Team
