Kerry Campaign Leaks Nader Appointment

A confidential disclosure from within the Kerry campaign confirmed a rumor Monday that Ralph Nader will "have an open welcome at the White House" when Kerry is elected. The rumor hit the internet when one of Fox News network's infamous "daily bulletins" warned its affiliates this past week to give no credibility to a "dangerous rumor" of a possible Kerry-Nader alliance.

A Kerry campaign source said that both John Kerry and John Edwards consider Nader to be a genuine American hero, "without whom car safety standards would never have been made a priority." The Kerry camp considers Nader's warnings about corporate corruption "have been manifest in the worst possible way by the Bush administration."

Kerry is considering Nader for an advisory position in his White House, possibly at the cabinet level.

Asked whether this leak is simply a political ploy to garner more votes, the Kerry source said that Americans "should know the core ethics of a Kerry-Edwards administration will be fundamentally opposed to those of George Bush. Ralph Nader is one of the most educated and experienced advocates in the country, and with his help, we aim to fight the corporate corruption which now undermines our economy."

A spokesperson for the Nader campaign welcomed the idea of a Nader role within the Kerry administration, saying "that would fulfill everything Ralph has been fighting to achieve in the past two campaigns."
