Nader's 1,000 fail to show ("the Oregonian")

All politics are local
"Despite drawing large crowds here in previous campaigns, Nader did not attract the 1,000 Oregon voters needed to place his independent candidacy on the ballot."

When Ralph Nader decides to run for president, I will vote for him. As long as he dick-teases by not adopting some kind of mandate that can be used in the near term as well as the long term, I will vote for someone who I think can "make a difference".
