Liberals just can’t leave politics …
US Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) stated that he is considering a Congressional run for office in another state. When it comes to Dennis Kucinich, one wonders where he might try another planet instead. Ohio lost two congressional seats in the reapportionment due to the 2010 U.S. Census. The result is that this will reduce Ohio to 16 congressional seats and 18 electoral votes come 2012. Kucinich is said to be eying the Congressional seat in the liberal state of Washington.
“If I don’t have anywhere I can run in Ohio, I have to start thinking about what my options are,” Kucinich in an interview with a television station in Lakewood, Ohio. “I prefer to continue serving the district I’ve served for as long as I have. But that’s not my choice to make in terms of the map.”
Ohio is losing two congressional seats in the redistricting process, and Kucinich’s is likely on the chopping block. If that happens he could end up drawn into a district with Rep. Betty Sutton (D-Ohio) or find himself having to run against Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) if he wanted to continue representing the state.
It will be rather interesting to see whether Washington opens its arms to the far Left 8 term Congressman or whether carpetbagging is deemed unpopular. The pathetic aspect of this is that liberal politicians just cannot leave politics. The private sector where results are expected is just to much for them. They just can’t get it through their heads that being a US Rep is not a lifetime appointment.
