    I think Marty Jezer should not discount
    the impact that this Nader campaign is having
    upon both young people and blue collar workers.
    Nader's educational campaign on progessive issues
    is suceeding  much more than any other program
    that the left has attempted in years. He has become
    the antidote to the Democratic Leadership Council's
    version of traditional Republican values.
    If Al Gore can't defeat George W. Bush, he doesn't
    deserve to be president of a lodge, let alone,
    the presidency of the United States.
    Jezer should look at the transformation, however
    temporary that the Democratic Party went through
    in the seventies.
    If Gore is defeated, the Democratic
    Party will be up for grabs.
    If Gore wins the seeds for a progressive party will
    have been planted. There will be less co-option of
    the Naderites by a Gore Administration than there
    has been of the Jesse Jackson Rainbow.
    It won't be easy, but it is a glimmer of hope
    for a progessive movement in 2000.
