Ralph Nader annonces plan to run for White House elections

WASHINGTON, Feb 24 (KUNA) — Ralph Nader, who once angered Democrats when he ran for White House elections in 2000 that brought President George Bush to office in razon-thin victory against Al Gore, on Sunday announced he will run for the White House office, accusing both Republican and Decomcratis condenders of making political speeches and turning away from addressing serious problems.

Nader, 74, ran for the white house in 2000 as an independent canddidate, and in 2004 campiagned as a green party condidate.
In both elections, he got less than three percent of votes, and Democrats have attacked him for working for repibliocans.
But he rejected the accusations, saying Democrats should not blame their failures on others.

“if the Democrats can’t landslide the Republicans this year, they ought to just wrap up, close down, emerge in a different form,” he said.

In an interview with the NBC’s “meet the press” program, Nader, American of Lebanese descent known as a consumer advocate, said he has decided to run because Washington became “corportae occupied territory”.

White House hopefulls Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton from the Democratis Party and John McCain from the Republican Part, played down the significance of Nader’s decision to run, saying his decision most likely would have no major impact on the results of the November national elections.
