A Primary Challenger For Obama?

Will there be a hard core liberal that stands up and challenges Barack Obama for 2012?

Ralph Nader not only believes there will be but is now saying "I would guess that the chances of there being a challenge to Obama in the primary are almost 100 percent."

The only question, he said, is the stature of that opponent and whether it will be either “an ex-senator or an ex-governor” or “an intellectual leader or an environmental leader.”

In approximately a week and a half there will be “another chapter of this effort,” Nader predicted.

It is seriously doubtful that Democratic leaders would ever nominate someone other than the sitting President, but should Obama be forced to defend himself against a Democratic challenger as well as against GOP candidates, it could be a popcorn worthy campaign season.
