One of the voices excluded from last night’s debate was consumer advocate Ralph Nader, the Presidential candidate for the Green Party. The bipartisan commission on Presidential Debates decided to exclude Nader, Reform Party nominee Ross Perot, Libertarian Party candidate Harry Browne, Natural Law Party candidate John Hagelin, from the presidential debates. Late last month, Ralph Nader participated in a forum in New York City called "Progressives and the 1996 elections."
