Nader Lobbies EU Leaders For Ballot Spot

Ralph Nader appealed once again to the European Union to place the perennial candidate on the ballot for the European Union Constitution voting, and that his presence, and a spot in running the new Union, will stem the tide of "No" votes.

On Sunday, voters in France said "No" to the constitution vote and on Wednesday, the Dutch overwhelmingly voted "No". This, for all intents-and-purposes, kills the adoption of the new constitution as all 25 members must approve it.

Nader cites his vast experience in battling to be included on ballots or in debates as a powerful tool in assisting the fledgling E.U. in gaining consensus and moving forward.

Nader also cited that he loves "cheese, chocolate and Jerry Lewis films" as reasons to bring him into the campaign.
