Dear Mr. Nader:
It has come to my attention that you have recently formed an exploratory committee to determine if you will run as a 2008 presidential candidate.
I realize that in the past you were instrumental in forming OSHA and played an important role as a consumer advocate and watchdog for product and automobile safety issues, your work with the EPA has helped raise awareness of our environmental responsibility as an industrialized nation, and your stand against big business and corporate greed has helped keep large monopolies in check. I'm sure you are very proud of those accomplishments.
And as a voter, I have no problem supporting an independent candidate. In fact, the first time I ever voted was for John Anderson in 1980. Unfortunately I also helped bring Jesse Ventura into office as Minnesota's governor in 1998, but I've apologized for that many times over since then.
But if you don't mind Mr. Nader, I have just one small request...
I know you say you didn't siphon votes away from Al Gore in 2000, but right now we cannot afford even the smallest diversion from the one candidate who can finally be the voice of reason for this country.
So if you could just do us that one little favor and go back inside, have a beer and leave the business of running for president to Mr. Obama - that would be great.
Me, and everyone else who is ready for a change
