Their political message is simple and clear: No voice truly critical of the
platform of the Republicans may be permitted; only the Democrats
must appear as “opponents” to the Republicans. They have no
objection to rightist, pro-war third-party candidates entering the race
and promoting their views. They only oppose a voice for peace and the
rule of law like that of Ralph Nader in 2000.

Never in the history of the United States had a magazine claiming to
favor democracy run a front page article calling on an individual to not
run for president until The Nation did so against Ralph Nader running
for President in 2004. The fact that polls show 23% of the people favor
Nader running (which extrapolated to the total voting population
represents about 40 million people) and 65% favored his inclusion in
the 2000 debates is of no concern to The Nation, which seeks to
silence the only candidate who in 2000 opposed the premises of
George Bush’s platform.
