no, ralph nader did not call president elect obama an uncle tom -- though him using that term was enough to send everyone at fox news off the deep end in an indignant self-righteous huff. i suppose that's the way some behave whenever anything racial is mentioned, which makes their behavior even more suspect to me. sometimes all it takes is a little context and some real live perspective to understand what's going on.
what he basically said was that obama can either be a president of the people or he can be a corporate tool. and you know what? he's right.
this video is of mr. nader defending his initial remarks beautifully, in spite of the interviewer's attempts to bully him.
