Video of Ralph Nader's acceptance speech at the Peace and Freedom Party (PFP) Convention held in California on August 2, 2008. More than half the attending delegates voted for Nader in the first round, thus ending the nomination.
After accepting the California's PFP Nomination for President, a much relieved and excited audience of delegates listened to the veteran activist give his acceptance speech. Nader graciously thanked his fellow candidates, including Cynthia McKinney, who, he said, amplified one another's presentations.
"We really have to go to work," said the man who never stops doing just that.
