Moments of Serendipity

Walking past the Red Register Guard newsstand this morning, I noted the following headline, which will be posted online at noon PDT.

Nader campaign says 25,000 signatures collected in Oregon

For those not familiar with Oregon election laws, if true, this means he'll be on the ballot as a presidential candidate, he will NOT have to rely on a write in vote.

Now, I have no illusions that he will siphon off as much of the Democratic vote as he did in 2000, but when you couple the number of extreme left voters in Oregon who WILL vote for Nader with the pro-Bush tendency I noted has been observed among many independents here, and for a Bush supporter, this is very very good news indeed.
