VIDEO: Ralph Nader Addresses His Reasons for Seeking the Presidency in 2004

On February 22, 2004, Nader appeared on Meet the Press to announce his candidacy and to address his reasons for seeking the nation's highest office. During his appearance, Nader answered many questions about his candidacy, such as:

- Why is he running this year, when so many Democrats have blamed him for 'throwing the 2000 election' to George W. Bush?
- Will a John Kerry presidency be much different from George W. Bush's first four years, from a foreign policy perspective?
- What would Nader do about the deepening war in Iraq if he were elected president?
- Should George W. Bush be impeached for misleading the American people into an illegal, immoral, and unnecessary war in Iraq?
- What does Nader make of a recent article in The Nation magazine urging him not to run in 2004?

Presented here is video of Nader's entire 20-minute appearance on Meet the Press, arranged in three unedited segments.
