Barr scares GOP

clipped from
Bob Barr's Libertarian Party bid for the White House is the
longest of long shots, but political experts say he may be able to
exploit the unease some die-hard conservatives still feel about
Sen. John McCain, the Republican nominee-in-waiting. Combined with
the surge in turnout among Democrats during the primaries and a
difficult political climate for Republicans, they see what could be
a recipe for trouble for the GOP.
"Bob could be the Ralph Nader of 2008," said Dan Schnur, a GOP
consultant in California who worked on McCain's 2000 campaign but
is not involved in this year's contest. Consumer advocate Nader is
the third-party candidate many Democrats blame for helping George
W. Bush narrowly win in 2000.
