Dennis who?

Dennis Kucinich. I know, I know: who? Apparently, he's a "dark horse" in the race for Democratic candidate in 2008. This is an interview in Newsweek that I thought you might like to see. I can't tell if he's arrogant or if he has that Texan flare: it ain't braggin if it's the truth. What do you think? And don't tell me about Barack. Only teenyboppers, wannabes, and posers like him.*




*Note--I would like Mr. Obama a lot more if he had been around a bit longer. I haven't heard anything exciting from him other than that he's got the guts to run for president so early in his career. As it is, I don't know anything about him (except that he and Hillary got in a fight, heh), and not knowing anything bothers me.

Kucinich is one of the far lefties who had no chance but ran anyway in 2004 and he, along w/ about 5 other candidates w/ no chance of winning, caused the debates to last about 3 hrs. He, much like Rev. Sharpton, does not run with the idea of actually winning the nomination but runs to push certain issues that he feels will be neglected by the more mainstream candidates. Good for him. Although he is not nearly as articulate or entertaining as Sharpton, he is always true to his beliefs and doesn't back down. But he has NO chance of winning a single precinct, much less the nomination.

We will all find much more about Senator Obama in the coming months. Be patient my friend. He has already come out in favor of universal health care and wants to end the Iraq war by March 2008. Those are significant stands, and it's still very early. All that aside, his optimism and voice of hope and opportunity is very refreshing after the tone that the current administration has set for the past 6 yrs. Give Obama time, he's different, and you may like what you see.

Kucinich will win when Ron Paul or Mike Hukabee win the R nomination- we will see- the 1964 election and Goldwaters defeat by Johnson proved that most voters do want "an echo" not "a choice"- lets see how fast people like Clinton race to the center after the primaries are over. The people like Kucunuch, and Ron Paul, who are true to their beliefs, do not get far on the national level in the political process, because they are not moderate enough for great swaths of the electorate.
