Nadered
 adj.— «Nader’s campaign disputes the commonly held belief that his 2000 run resulted in Bush winning the presidency. Campaign officials say there were many other factors at play. Still, the notion persists, and political experts have even coined a term for when a third-party candidate swings an election. They call it being “Nadered.”» —“Nader, Barr may be a factor in this election” by Anne Ryman Arizona Republic (Phoenix) Oct. 12, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
