Liberals lobby Nader

The week's news at a glance.

Washington, D.C.

A group of prominent liberals last week sent Ralph Nader a letter begging him to abandon what they called his “quixotic and destructive” bid for the presidency. The activists, including leaders of Americans for Democratic Action and the Council for a Livable World, said Nader’s run in 2000 helped their political nemesis, President Bush, defeat Democrat Al Gore. Polls show that 5 percent of voters support Nader, which could be enough to help Bush win re-election over Democrat John Kerry. Spokesman Kevin Zeese said Nader would not bow out simply to help someone else beat Bush. “You have to stand for something,” Zeese said.
