Starting Problem - Ground Wire?

Normally my '96 GM starts right up - no problem. Once in a while I will turn the key and get NOTHING. If I pop the hood and jiggle the ground wire coming off the battery (the small one) it will start right up. Both ground wire and Battery ground are in great shape and make good contact... at least that's what they look like.

Anybody ever have this problem? Do I need to just replace the whole cable?
