Nader: Sharpest Guy in the Room

It's no surprise that Ralph Nader makes more sense than anyone else in politics. What's surprising is that, at 74, he is as smart and as principled as ever. Watch the video. It was recorded last week in San Francisco at The Commonwealth Club of California and runs a little more than an hour. Skip the first four minutes and forgive the production values. You'll also need some patience. The interviewer starts by going over old ground (i.e. the 2000 election). The good stuff begins about eight minutes in and then sails on right through to the end.

The embedded video has been working on and off. If it isn't working, click this link. It may work that way. Keep your fingers crossed.
