Nader: Street Warrior?

I just come across this article. Nader is accusing Obama of "talking" white and should focus more on the poor in the inner cities. I believe that Nader is missing the point and perpetuating a stereotype. Obama is trying to appeal to all Americans, not just African Americans. Poverty strikes not only in the inner city here in Missouri, but also in poor rural areas. Poverty does not discriminate. I know I just gave Nader more attention than he deserves. His 1/2 of one percent vote intake in 2004 is evidence of his irrelevance.

Maybe if Obama started to talk "street" Nader would then, only in his mind, lend crediablity to Obama's candidancy? Probably not.
