Just two days before Republican Sarah Palin squares off against Democrat Joe Biden -- and only days after the tops of the tickets had their own debate -- five-time presidential candidate Ralph Nader spoke to The Commonwealth Club of California's Inforum about his own exclusion from the presidential debates.
Nader blamed Sen. Barack Obama for excluding him from the debates, saying that the Illinois senator refused to participate in the debates if Nader was present. Though Nader has a negligible presence in the presidential polls, he warned that the failure to include him in the debates was a significant reason why the issues Nader champions are not being exposed to the voting public.
