Okay, so Ralph's running again

I'm not sure how to react to the news. My first question is, with what "third-party" would he run? I know there's been some scuttlebutt that he'd run as a Green, but the Greens alread have some good contenders, including Cynthia McKinney. Would he run as an independent like in 2004? If so, how many state ballots could he get himself on? Oklahoma would already be out of the question. Heck, Greens and Libertarians, who would ostensibly have the best chance of getting onto our state's ballot, are facing an extremely uphill fight to do that as it is under our state's draconian laws. Beyond the fact that he at least gets a lot of the faithful Donkle followers' knickers in a knot (always good for a laugh or two), I'm just not finding much in a Nader candidacy to get too excited about.
