Ralph Nader has spent his career crusading against big corporate influence and the anger over Wall Street may have given him new life. It’s the third straight Presidential campaign for the consumer advocate and his impact in national polls has shrunk each time. He’s had a tough time getting on state ballots and has had no luck getting into national debates. But the news of the last few months has clearly shifted right into Nader’s wheelhouse.
A long-time opponent of what he calls “corporate welfare," his message is in line with the feelings of many voters, angry at a 700 billion dollar bailout package they think helps Wall Street more than average citizens. Today on Where We Live, a forum with Ralph Nader – live from Northwestern Regional 7 High School in Winsted, CT – Nader’s hometown.
