Nader 2012? "It's too early to tell," says Ralph Nader. But he certainly sounds interested. His beef with President Obama: Liberals and progressives aren't getting much face time. "He turns his back on people who have nowhere to go politically but to support him," Nader says. "And that's a very bad sign." Nader also isn't a bailout fan. "You don't spend trillions of dollars with a massive detour of that money at Wall Street. You've got to go to the communities," he says. And closer to home, Obama's ignored Nader. "He's just avoiding intensive meetings with the progressive community."
