Facing emergencies from Ukraine to the Mexican border, President Obama left Washington on Tuesday for a three-day Democratic fundraising trip amid signs that his image-makers are worried about criticism that the president's excursion is an "unsavory distraction."
Consumer crusader Ralph Nader on Wednesday chastised Rep. Darrell Issa for squandering his tenure as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee by pursuing the IRS scandal and other "fanciful allegations."
During our last great energy crisis, which President Carter combated in part by installing solar panels on the White House roof, a wood stove in the living quarters and proposing that goats crop the White House lawns, I had a ringside seat at a debate, televised live on the old Phil Donahue show in Chicago, between my boss of those years, John Swearingen, and Ralph Nader.
Ralph Nader is at it again, this time on a mission that he says will bring America's liberals and conservatives together in the fight against corporate overreach and government secrecy.
Consumer advocate and erstwhile presidential candidate Ralph Nader said Thursday that former Secretary of State and possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is a "doubleheader" in that "she's a militarist and she's a corporatist."
Third-party presidential candidates always have tried to crash presidential debates, but now there's a bigger movement trying to break the two main political parties' monopoly on the debates themselves.

Pressure is mounting on Barack Obama to throw in the cards and announce that he won't seek re-election as president. Surprisingly, the push is coming from the left. This has many in mainstream America scratching their heads asking why liberals want to dump the most hard-left president in American history. The answer is they're worried Mr. Obama has moved too far, too fast - and revealed too much of their big-government agenda - to win a second term. This is Hillary Clinton's moment.
Worried the liberal voice is being drowned out in the presidential campaign, progressive leaders said Monday they want to field a slate of candidates against President Obama in the Democratic primaries to make him stake out liberal stances as he seeks re-election.
Raising another concern of liberals, Mr. Nader said the Senate bill — which offers banks incentives to make loans to blacks and Hispanics but does not require them to do so — "does not advance adequate support for affordable and low-income housing for underserved communities."
He added that "shareholders should be allowed to participate in any future recovery."
