No worries for Nader: All signs point to Ralph Nader jumping into the presidential race. But Democrats shouldn't worry about him this year.

For one thing, nobody who seriously wants Bush out of office will vote for Nader. Whether it's really Ralph's fault that Bush got elected in the first place, the perception that Nader took votes away from Gore will scare any serious Democrat from voting for the aging consumer advocate. Nader will only attract people who are determined to vote for None of the Above.

In addition, Nader isn't going to seek the Green Party nomination. Without that party's money and organizing power, Nader won't garner any attention.

So for all intents and purposes, Nader won't even exist this year.
