Nader Wants Bush and Cheney Held Accountable

Presidential Candidate (I) Ralph Nader, positioned with a crowd of supporters in front of the White House, called out Bush for "contracting out the U.S. government to corporations." Nader tied corporate accountability and government accountability, saying that in Bush's seven years he has "dishonored the White House, and brought to the White House a pattern of criminality, insensitivity and waste unparalleled in American presidential history."

Congressman Kucinich also called for impeachment, giving us hope that, for at least these politicians, demanding justice is on the agenda.
