Nader Wants Obama to Face Primary

Ralph Nader is looking for someone to launch a Democratic primary challenge to President Obama, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Said Nader: "If he's smart, he'll welcome it, because nothing's worse than an incumbent president slipping in the polls, being constantly on the defensive, being accused by supporters of having no backbone and running an unenthusiastically received campaign."

First Read: "Actually, recent history has proven that nothing's worse for an incumbent president to receive a serious primary challenge."
