The Washington Post described Dennis Kucinich’s Presidential Democratic nomination run as follows:
Citing dissatisfaction with his party’s strategy on Iraq, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (Ohio) announced yesterday that he would run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
It may have better been stated as follows: Citing dissatisfaction that Dennis Kucinich has received no face time since the last Democratic Presidential nomination debate in 2004, Kucinich runs for his parties nomination. Since then Dennis Kucinich has been in the “where are they now” files. I am sure Hillary Clinton lost sleep with Kucinich’s announcement for another run. Talk about doing something as a resume builder and to have that caption beneath your name when doing a TV appearance … “former Presidential candidate“. Forget the Obama media craze … Dennis has joined the big dance. Let the games begin.
As Dennis Kucinich stated when asked if he planned a 2008 run for the White House, “Yes, I Am”. Honestly, what else is he doing with his time? He might as well run as his candidacy falls in to the “what else am I doing vote for me” mode.
He says he plans to show up for every debate he is invited to — and even if not, he may show up anyway.
