YouTube Interviews Ralph Nader


I'll be honest. I got issues with Ralph. I don't blame him for the 2000 election. I blame the voters.

More seriously, I question whether running for president is the best way to bring about the radical change he wants. His premise is that his campaigns (because they surely will not become actual presidencies) help promote issues and move the debate.

Really? So over the last eight years, America has been engaged in a more honest discussion of war-making and corporate malfeasance than before? That I don't buy.

There are some cool moments in the interview, though, and Olivia Ma of YouTube does a good job keeping it moving. I actually like the "silent" questionnaire at the end. Perhaps it's because I'm just tired of hearing Nader speak.
