Funny you should mention Kucinich...

Most Dems I talk to have taken an online test of some kind to align them with their platform/values/etc (including me) and came up with the same conclusion: Dennis Kucinich. I remember we talked about this about 2 years ago or so...

Honestly, he is aligned squarely with what I've been saying over many years, but here's the problem: viability. I grew up in Ohio after his tenure as Mayor of Cleveland -- which was (at best) tumultuous... then during his term (current) as U.S. House Rep. of Ohio's 10th District. I think the Media has painted him with a crummy brush, which is likely going to stick.

I'd vote for him if he had a shot at it, but I think we both know his chances. I understand a vote is a vote, but Politics is Politics (geez that's corny), but nevertheless, the big names get the nod. I learned that the hard way with Nader in 2000, and with the caucus process in Iowa.

Obama will likely take the Liberal vote from DK -- those who stood with him in the Caucuses in Iowa were forced to choose from one of the "Viable 3". More than 80% of the time, that went to Obama, second to Edwards, with a tiny percentage to Hillary as a "Second Choice". NH will probably see stronger support at the Kucinich camp, but I see Obama or Clinton as 1st and 2nd respectively.

Crazy process. 2 party system. That's what we've got...

Stems from our elementary schools IMO....

Having a problem? Well, "There's always two sides to the story." Or some analogous phrase.

Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.
