Gear Up the Nader Train?

With almost all political attention focused on Iowa and then New Hampshire, it attracted little notice when Ralph Nader sent out a new year's greeting endorsing (apparently) any candidate but Hillary:
Nader had earlier made it clear that of the leading candidates, he viewed John Edwards as the best choice for Democrats who want to change the 'corporate power damaging the interests' of ordinary Americans. Nader said that Edwards understands that the key is not 'to replace a corporate Republican with a corporate Democrat.'
If Edwards finishes third in Iowa--as seems a definite possibility--the media is likely to frame the Democratic race as a two-person race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. If Edwards is no longer viable, does that mean it's time to start preparing for another Ralph Nader run?
