Winners and Losers: Ruby Dee and Ralph Nader

Although Rudy Dee didn't win the Oscar last night for her role in "American Gangster," she is still a winner in our hearts for being a staunch social activist. For nearly sixty years Lady Dee and her beloved husband, the late Ossie Davis, used their celebrity to speak out on racial injustices, especially during the Civil Rights Movement. Ruby, keep it real and make it rain on them with your red dress!

Consumer advocate Ralph Nader is back again, running for president. While I support and respect his efforts to stop corporate welfare and special interests in Capital Hill, what is the point of him getting in the race so late in the game. It almost seems like he wants John McCain to win.
