Nader's first official act upon returning to the White House was to pardon Native American imprisoned activist Leonard Peltier. "Most Americans are in favor of pardoning people convicted of murdering two FBI agents in the line of duty," said newly-sworn in President Nader. "It's going to be a fruitful four years for progressive activists," he continued. "They have always hade power, they have power, and they will continue to have power."
