Would you have some clever strategic or point-making reason, in this instance, in voting for Nader instead?

Because Kerry is far too right-wing from what I've seen. Still to the left of Bush, but so is practically everyone. Given that it's a two-horse race, Kerry is the only sensible contender (hence "should win") but that doesn't make him a good candidate, only the lesser of two evils...

Kerry is right-wing? What are you smoking?!

Tobacco, Anonymous, but only rarely.

Perhaps taking a look at the candidates stances would be useful? Maybe reviewing the meaning of left-right in politics?

Nader is fairly left-wing but is more liberal (in the true sense of the word, not as an insult used by far-right groups against not-quite-so-far-right groups) - centre-left is probably accurate - which is, in my opinion, quite a reasonable place for a politician to be.

As far as I can tell, the US hasn't had anyone left-wing in the White House in (considerably longer than) my lifetime. After the McCarthy Witch-hunts nobody in government would even dare admit to (gasp!) communist sympathies.
