With House Democrats bracing for Election Day losses on Tuesday, Ralph Nader is calling on Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other top party leaders to call it quits.

"Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Steve Israel should now recognize the wisdom of baseballs 'three strikes and youre out' ... step down from their posts and invite fresh leadership who can save the country from the ravages of todays Republican party," Nader said Tuesday in a statement.

Left them cold and ran away with their goodies in hand.
Hey Ralphie! How about term limits for all of the SOB’s???
I always liked Ralph Nader despite his leftist beliefs.
Me too. He is more honest than most on the public stage today. He is usually wrong, but at least he calls it like he sees it.
malignant narcissists don’t listen to anyone else
When Ralph put out a book that included Paul Newman as an integral character, six months after he had died, I concluded that late-stage dementia had set in.
