In 2000, Nader ran in the presidential election as a third-party candidate. Many Democrats blamed Nader for costing the election, which resulted in a George W. Bush victory by only 537 votes over Al Gore. On February 24, 2008, Nader announced 2008 presidential bid, naming former San Francisco Board of Supervisors president Matt Gonzalez as his running mate. « Show less
