Nader's housing bonds

Here's the latest AP headline on the presidential race, Nader Again Refuses Dems' Request He Quit.

In other news, the Washington Post printed the following recap of the latest poll numbers:

In a November ballot test, Kerry leads Bush 48 percent to 44 percent among registered voters, with 6 percent supporting Nader. Last month, Kerry and Bush were tied. With Nader out of the race, Kerry's advantage swells to 8 points, evidence of the continuing threat that Nader's candidacy poses to the Democrat.

First, Nader elected Bush and now he's doing everything he can re-elect him. This includes maneuvering to waste Kerry's resources, whatever it takes stroke the egos on the fringe left.

San Francisco Outleft

Nader has perfected at the presidential level the good ol' San Francisco Outleft while locally Supervisor Matt Gonzalez is mimicking Nader's moves so perfectly he might want to consider a career in forgery.

Nader would rather re-elect Bush than be accused of compromising and the Board seems to have adopted a similar position with the housing bond. Nothing moved in yesterday's Board meeting, because the progressives are too concerned with winning politically to succeed in providing affordable housing.

Yet I think Kerry's going to pull together a victory and this fall some of the current members of the Board of Supervisors are going to find out what the voters think of Nader.
