Nader in Portland today

Independent presidential and vice-presidential candidates Ralph Nader (no intro needed) and Matt Gonzalez (a San Francisco politician who came close to being that city's mayor in 2003) will be campaigning in Portland at 6:30 this evening at the First Parish Church (425 Congress Street). Suggested contribution is $10 ($5 for students). 

In recent days, Nader's criticized Congress (and Barack Obama and John McCain) for its actions on the bailout bill and the economy. He's still pushing to be included in the debates and the polls.

Still, he's attracting far less attention (and ire/angst) than in previous years. One columnist thinks the spoiler effect is being overlooked this year
