Conn. Green Party wants Ralph

After you run for President and lose a few times the next action is to set your sight lower. Well that is the plan if you are 75-year-old Consumer activist and Connecticut native Ralph Nader. He is said to be contemplating a possible bid for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut. The challenge he would face is from Democratic Senator Chris Dodd who has come under criticism for his role in the national financial crisis as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. The Connecticut Green Party members see a seat that is ripe for the picking with the right guy. The Green Party knows this one of the best opportunities for the Greens to win a U.S. Senate seat. Vice President Al Gore could not be reached for comment but you know he is saying why this could not have happened in 2000. Green Party candidate Nader got 2.7 percent of the vote. Republican George W. Bush won the electoral vote. We have thought the democrats might even want to Dodd to step out of the way to put a candidate that can hold the seat. The latest polls show that over 50% of Connecticut voters are not happy with his work in Washington. If Ralph Nader is the best the Green Party can do, if Ralph Nader is the best Connecticut can do, they are better off having an empty seat.
