Upstairs, PAUL SHAFFER was making his way to the elevators when he passed Mr. Nader, who was standing near the wall. "You're Canadian!" Mr. Nader said, and they had a short discussion about Canada.
We asked Mr. Nader, who said he was invited by Ms. Ono, about HILLARY CLINTON's prospects for 2008, given her newly positioned centrist platform, and -
"She's not a centrist," Mr. Nader interrupted. "She's a social-services corporatist."
O.K. Would you run against her?
"Too early to tell."
He's good with the snappy epithet: Canadian! Social-services corporatist!
