Deja Vu All Over Again
Ralph Nader is considering a presidential run.
According to the Miriam-Webster Online Dictionary, a nadir is the exact opposite of the zenith
or "the lowest point". By such a definition, the "nadir" can only happen once. This is clearly not the case.
Or maybe this is not entirely fair. Nader might be a spoiler, but in all fairness to him, it would be preferable if we had more than two political parties. Running for president on a third party ticket won't do the job, what is needed is fundamental reform. We need proportional representation to replace our current system.
