(Newser) – The debt ceiling deal has so inflamed liberals that "the chances of there being a challenge to Obama in the primary are almost 100%," Ralph Nader said yesterday in an interview with the Daily Caller. Nader has said for a while that he’s trying to get someone to run against Obama, and after last week, he's sure a Democrat will step up to the plate. He’s just not sure who yet, but he says there will be “another chapter of this effort” in about a week and a half.

Nader said the candidate could be “an ex-senator or an ex-governor” or an “intellectual leader or an environmental leader.” One thing’s for sure though, the candidate won’t be Nader himself. “I’ve done my rounds,” he said.
