What candidate running for President in this election cycle foretold the Wall Street debacle ? Based on what the major candidates are claiming, you might think it was Obama or even McCain (if you were totally snowed by their propaganda). But if you knew the truth, you'd have only one name on the tip of your tongue -- Ralph Nader, Consumer Crusader. The Nader Library has the transcript of his speech from October 5th in Connecticut, and the video. The sound bite for the night: "Now think of the moment we lost here in the last week. Washington had Wall Street over a barrel. They would have had to agree to anything in order to get their $700 billion bailout. Instead, notwithstanding that Washington had Wall Street over a barrel, Wall Street opened the barrel, stuffed Washington into the barrel, and then rolled Washington. That's how bad it was."
