Nader Rally in Portland Drew 1150

Last night's Nader rally in Portland drew 1150 people. If there are enough valid signatures from that rally (he needs 1000), Nader will be on the Oregon ballot next November. Hopefully, other later stories will say who attended and provide us some information about how many were there answering the call of the right wing.

The Oregon Family Council also has been working the phones to boost attendance at Mr. Nader's event with the idea that it could help Mr. Bush this fall.

"We aren't bashful about doing it," said Mike White, the group's director. "We are a conservative, pro-family organization, and Bush is our guy on virtually every issue."

Even if it comes from an unusual source, Mr. Nader can probably use the help, given that this will be his second attempt to win a spot on Oregon's ballot.

I'll say. Whether this makes Nader a contender is highly questionable as it appears he cannot pull even a thousand supporters that would actually vote for him.

With the Greens shooting him down I don't see Nader having much of an impact. One thing we need to start asking the Nader people when they say there is no difference between Kerry and Bush is: Who do you want to appoint 3 people to the Supreme Court in the next 4 years, Bush or Kerry?
