I think the term "Nader X" refers to the fact that Nader has no chance 
of winning a majority, but takes enough votes from the candidate most 
like him (X = usually the democrats) that they both lose to the other party.
Hence, to "Nader someone" is to split the vote amongst similar 
candidates causing them both to lose.

P.S. This doesn't work in Australia, where we have preferential voting, 
rather than "first past the post".
