Matt Gonzalez, a former San Francisco supervisor who nearly pulled off a startling upset against Gavin Newsom in the mayoral race there five years ago, has found a more certain way to lose. He signed on today as Ralph Nader's presidential running mate.
"I have no illusions," Gonzalez said at the press conference at the National Press Club. "I've never entered a contest without some sense the contest can be won."
By the way, as long as I'm in cranky blogger mode, I would note that most press accounts of Nader's recent campaign announcement said that this is his third run for the presidency. Nader ran back in 1996 as well, but he didn't campaign and nobody cared since he had no effect on that race.
