, KCRW's nationally syndicated public affairs program. Some of Ralph Nader's best friends are warning that he may be too successful for his own good. Former Nader's Raiders are telling the Green Party nominee to back off in states where he might tip the electoral vote to George W. Bush.

Today we'll ask, could they make the difference in one of history's closest elections?
