SOURCE: BLEEDING CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER
I have often found that the very action of bleeding the clutch causes the slave piston to move forward drawing any air away from the bleed nipple.
Try pushing the piston all the way to the back of the cylinder and holding it there in some way and if you can detach the slave from the gearbox, allow it to hang by the hydraulic pipe and this in it self will cause any air to rise to the rear part of the slave and hopefully out through the bleed nipple.
Because I did this job regularly on MG Midgets which gave you a 6" by 2" access hole at the bottom of the drivers side footwell to carryout this operation I eventually made up a tool from a piece of flat bar and a long bolt, I used the mounting holes of the slave and two nuts and bolts to hold the flat bar and the long bolt via a welded nut on the flat bar to push the piston back.
I feel your pain.

I have not tried myself but see if the link below will work for your case. It is not the same model as you have but most vehicles have the same components for the non electronic parts. http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1988-dodge-dakota--bleding-air-out-of-clutch-master-cylinder-vt248517.html
