    Hi All - - taken from the Daily Grist and intended to stir the political
    debate pot.

    Ralph Nader's contention that there is no difference between Al Gore
    and George W. Bush is "irresponsible" and his campaign threatens the
    environment by potentially tipping the election toward Bush, writes
    Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in an op-ed in today's New York Times.
    Kennedy, a lawyer for the Natural Resources Defense Council and one
    of Gore's most powerful enviro allies, says that Gore deserves credit
    for protecting the environment against the "Gingrich Congress,"
    fighting against global warming, and pushing for stronger air and
    land protections. Kennedy believes that a vote for Nader is
    effectively a vote for George W. Bush, who has a "famously abysmal
    environmental record," and he argues that enviros who join Nader's
    "personal crusade risk marginalizing the conservation movement."
