Ralph Nader on C-SPAN

Recently Ralph Nader spoke (was interviewed by a moderator, which, in the common parlance, qualifies as a "debate") at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, and this weekend C-SPAN carried the 1-hour 7-minute program. It's on the web in Real Player format here. Well worth listening to. To amuse yourself, just imagine Nader on the stage with any of the "real" candidates ("real" in the eyes of the corporate media), from Barack Obama to Sarah Palin. Or perhaps you won't be amused, only depressed, when you realize the kind of support a candidate like Nader could receive if the American people had equal access to his ideas as to the "ideas" of the others.

If only the Commonwealth Club and C-SPAN would devote equal attention to other equally deserving candidates, like Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation and Cynthia McKinney of the Green Party.
