Left-wing activist Ralph Nader is at it again. He will attempt to put together a group of Democrats who could run against President Barack Obama next year, even though Nader thinks Obama will be re-elected, he tells Politico.

Nader is looking for someone more liberal than Obama, who has moved to the center since Republicans drubbed their Democratic opponents in last year’s elections. Nader himself made a significant run for the presidency in 2000, representing the Green Party.

The long-time consumer advocate says he wants to assemble about five presidential candidates who will “dramatically expand a robust discussion within the Democratic Party and among progressive voters across the country.” Each candidate would concentrate on an issue where Obama has turned moderate, such as the environment, labor and healthcare, Nader says.
