The Guardian profile: Ralph Nader
Was reading this profile and remembered that one of the funniest stories I had when I first joined the campaign was what the organization was like back in September 2003. When I walked in, the number of volunteers I had seen in the summer had evaporated - all of the desks were either filled with chum from events for the campaign or the rest of the Internet staff on terribly uncomfortable desks.
People never really understand what it takes to run a campaign - and I never had a clue. I walked into this world - and had my eyes opened - something I did not expect.
