Ralph Nader makes a camplagn stop in Buffalo, NY - April 25th, 2008
Ralph Nader’s speech part two from his press conference at DU’s Magness Arena during the 2008 DNC in Denver, Colorado. We had no tripod for this shoot, folks, so I apologize for the camera work, but Ralph’s speech is worth listening to, and it would be awesome to see him debate. www.votenader****

The Nader campaign's trying to raise 80 grand by September 27. This ain't no endorsement, but hell, give him money if you want. It's harmless. It's like givin' a coupla bucks to a homeless guy outside of Kroger. A homeless guy who invented seatbelts.

Ron Paul and Ralph Nader on CNN 9-10-2008
Nader speaks to the media about his platforms.
Third party presidential candidate Ralph Nader isn't getting much television exposure, but he has 2 percent support of likley voters according to yesterday's Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll. Could it be that alternative media, including online video shows, might be helping his cause? Wouldn't it be ironic if the Obama Girl herself is helping him?
Recently Barely Political, an online political humor site, produced two videos featuring the Obama Girl, Amber Lee Ettinger, and the 74-year old consumer advocate turned inveterate candidate. Ben Relles, the show's producer, tells Beet.TV that the two segment have gotten 400,000 views to date.
Her first video, "I Got a Crush on Obama" has had 10 million views on YouTube.
We asked Ben if the Obama Girl is endorsing Nader. He told us no, Amber is supporting Barack Obama, but the show enjoyed spending time with Nader. If Nader's popularity becomes an issue in closely contested battleground states, some might think the Obama Girl/Nader clips might not be too funny. Here's the take on the "odd couple" by the Huffington Post's media columnist Rachel Sklar.
Earlier this week, I caught up with Amber at the Time/CNN Politics '08 summit in Manhattan. Amber tells me she is astonished by impact of the Obama Girl videos on her career. She is getting a lot of notice these days. GQ has published this photo of her in the current issue (below). And, she has yet to meet the Illinois Senator.

Down the Tubes that is... at least that's what Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader warns of if the people who use YouTube, and other video sharing sites, don't get involved and do something about our two party political system. You can do something NOW by leaving a comment or sending this video to a friend and helping to make sure this message gets seen and herd.
Thanks for getting involved, paul
As a keynote speaker and the world's most renowned consumer advocate, many of his once "controversial ideas," such as seat belts and air bags are now a vital part of our safety as Nader continues to soldier on. Distributed by Tubemogul.
