Nader was the best candidate.
When I was actively organizing for the Greens, I tried to get our local group to de-emphasize the environmental stuff (since, we could do absolutely nothing and still get popular credit for being the "most" enviromentally aware, if only because of the name) and focus on Nader's issues of Guv accountability (libertarian reduction in corporate welfare and guv waste, fraud and abuse), and social justice (zero dogfood consumption by humans). I still think the Greens have the best overall platform, but they're severely hampered by Merkin's fealty to the stultifying two party thinking and skepticism of new stuff than ain't accompanied by a full-tilt Madison Avenue marketing blitz.
