GREEN BROWN SHOW:

Nader chooses Matt Gonzalez as his running mate (AP, 2/28/08)

Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader selected Matt Gonzalez, a former member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, to be his running mate.

Nader, who launched his fourth White House bid last weekend, made the announcement Thursday at a news conference. The Texas-born Gonzalez ran for mayor of San Francisco as a Green Party candidate in 2003 but lost to Democrat Gavin Newsom after a surprisingly close runoff election. Gonzalez, a lawyer, has been largely inactive in city politics since then.

San Francisco Board of Supervisors??

So this is confirmation that Nader is, in fact, putting us on. As long as we're square on that...

Yes, it may be hard for many of you to believe, but Gavin Newsom was the more conservative of the choices in the last election here, so I held my nose and voted for him.

I'm used to that sort of thing, though, and I'll do it again when I have to vote for McCain....

Strange. I was absolutely certain he was going to choose Ron Paul.
