BYGONES Dennis, Ralph (inset)(Photo: Getty Images) The endorsements flying around the Democratic presidential candidates this week are playing out like an incestuous, adulterous affair akin to the prom episode of Beverly Hills, 90210. Inevitably, this situation leaves some ugly-duckling politicians feeling alone and unwanted. And in the unloving triangle that is Ralph Nader, Denny Kucinich, and John Edwards, that person is Nader.

Early this week, Nader accused Hillary of being a "corporate democrat" and endorsed John Edwards, saying the handsome southerner was a "glimmer of hope." (That smile, those eyes, the hair!) But it seemed more a spiteful move than anything for Nader to choose Johnny Boy over former pal little Denny Kucinich. The Kucinich camp famously dropped the third-party Nader in the 2004 general elections, cowing to Democratic big wigs, and threw his (light) weight behind John Kerry.

Is Nader still sour at Kucinich over this betrayal? Hard to say. But, hey, who really wants a Nader endorsement these days anyway? Edwards isn't exactly glowing.
