CNN Political Ticker: Nader considering another White House run
WASHINGTON (AP) — Ralph Nader could be poised for another third party presidential campaign.
The consumer advocate will appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. Nader launched his 2004 presidential run on the show.
A spokesman for Nader did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Kevin Zeese, who was Nader's spokesman during the 2004 presidential
race, but is no longer working for him, said Friday that Nader has been
actively talking to "lots of people on all sorts of levels" about the
possibility of making another run.
Zeese said he could only guess what Nader might do, but added:
"Obviously, I don't think ("Meet the Press" host) Tim Russert would have him on for no reason."
Great, just what we need, another egomaniacal campaign from brain damaged Ralph. He does not stand a chance. Nor does he gain any political capital. John Edwards gained political capital from his run. He will have some leverage at the Democratic Convention. What power will Ralph wield? None. This is a waste of his time, and ours.
Stay home Ralphy boy. Your time in the light was never about running for office.

Barack Obama cruised past a fading Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Wisconsin primary and Hawaii caucuses Tuesday night, gaining the upper hand in a Democratic presidential race for the ages.
The twin triumphs made 10 straight for Obama, and left the former first lady in desperate need of a comeback in a race she long commanded as front-runner.
"The change we seek is still months and miles away," Obama told a boisterous crowd in Houston in a speech in which he also pledged to end the war in Iraq in his first year in office.
"I opposed this war in 2002. I will bring this war to an end in 2009. It is time to bring our troops home," he declared.More here.
Musharraf’s Party Accepts Defeat - New York Times
LAHORE, Pakistan — Pakistan appeared to be heading for a transition to an elected civilian government Tuesday after President Pervez Musharraf told visiting United States senators that he accepted the resounding defeat of his party in elections, and would work with a new Parliament.
You mean his efforts at rigging the election in Pakistan didn't pan out? I am shocked, Shocked! I tell you. How could such a despicable situation befall a gallant ally in the GLOBAL WAR AGAINST TERROR?
Poor, poor President Bush. First the Protect America Act lapses
, now Musharraf loses the election. He stands alone, does our quacker of a president.

Castro resigns as president, state-run paper reports - CNN.com
HAVANA, Cuba (CNN) -- Fidel Castro announced his resignation as president of Cuba and commander-in-chief of Cuba's military Tuesday, according to a letter published in the state-run newspaper, Granma.
Well, son of a bitch! I guess being a communist dictator can lead to a long life, ending in retirement. I wonder if technical colleges will be developing courses for budding communist dictators.
