June 23, 2004 -- NPR's Robert Siegel travels with independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader in Illinois and Indiana. Nader says he is running for the office as a way to steer the Democratic Party toward an agenda he advocates. The longtime consumer advocate wants would-be supporters to attend his rallies, but he says he wants them to feel free to cast their votes for Sen. John Kerry once they enter the voting booth -- especially in swing states where their vote might help defeat President Bush.
I know this is hard for some of us to grasp, but in Oregon, a vote for Nader is not recommended by Nader himself. You like the guy, right? Think he should be president, right? Consider him a leader, a visionary, a wise man? Then follow his damn advice and get rid of G. W. Bush. Vote for Kerry.
Unless you live in Utah or something, and are just trolling here. This only matters in swing states, in non-swing states your vote does not matter at all so just don't bother caring about politics.
