On Sunday, Ralph Nader outlined the agenda of his independent presidential campaign on Meet the Press. Meanwhile, John Kerry and John Edwards outlined their agendas on This Week. Nader said he was running to offer voters a real choice in 2004. With that in mind, here are the positions Nader articulated Sunday, compared to the positions articulated by Kerry and Edwards and the positions taken by the Bush administration and the Bush campaign. Happy choosing.
