If Kerry "negotiates with Nader" Kerry will lose about half of his "core"
supporters and EVERYBODY who is "in the middle." Nader is accomplishing
nothing by running except trying to get Bush re-elected.

This is a very good idea, and I will help if I can.

Some time ago, I had the idea to start a site with the goal of convincing 
Nader fans that voting for him was a bad idea, but unlike other such sites, 
mine would have a technical emphasis and explain why our plurality system is

so broken (and thus why voting for a 3rd party candidate actually hurts, 
rather than helps, a voter's cause).  I didn't get very far on it, but the 
outline is at http://www.karmatics.com/voting/outline.html , and there are a

couple articles linked to it.  If you want that kind of thing for your site,

maybe I can contribute.  I still think that the more people understand 
election theory, the less likely they are to vote for Nader, and the more 
likely they would be see the value in a Nader/Kerry negotiation.
