WASHINGTON -- Ralph Nader says he is running for president.=20

The consumer advocate, who has run as a third party presidential =
candidate two times before, made the announcement Sunday on NBC's "Meet =
the Press.=20

He said most Americans are disenchanted with the Democratic and =
Republican parties, and that none of the presidential contenders are =
addressing ways to stem corporate crime and Pentagon waste and promote =
labor rights.=20

Nader also kicked off his 2004 presidential run on the show.=20

Kevin Zeese, who was Nader's spokesman during the 2004 presidential =
race, but is no longer working for him, said Friday that Nader had been =
actively talking to "lots of people on all sorts of levels" about the =
possibility of making another run.=20

Peter Camejo, Nader's running mate in 2004, said Nader's overall =
philosophy on elections has not changed.=20

"You've got to keep running to raise the issues that are never =
discussed," Camejo said. "There's a whole series of issues that only a =
Ralph Nader would raise."=20

Last month, Nader began an exploratory presidential campaign and =
launched a Web site that promises to fight "corporate greed, corporate =
power, corporate control."=20

Nader is still loathed by many Democrats who call him a spoiler and =
claim his candidacy in 2000 cost Democrats the election by siphoning =
votes away from Al Gore in a razor-thin contest in Florida. Nader has =
vociferously disputed the spoiler claim, saying only Democrats are to =
blame for losing the race to George W. Bush.=20

Though he won 2.7 percent of the national vote as the Green Party =
candidate in 2000, Nader won just 0.3 percent as an independent in 2004, =
when he appeared on the ballot in only 34 states.
