Barack Obama and Dennis Kucinich at the Yearly Kos convention in 2007.

Dennis Kucinich is one of the “FEW” that makes any sense.  He’s highly intelligent, compassionate, cares about us - the little guys, and does an excellnt job in all areas and on all levels.  Thankfully he’s there.  Too bad he can’t be our president.  Very sad ~

Dennis Kucinich: still one of the very few politicians in America who makes sense. He is right for certain about the consequences of imperialistic militarism America pursues.
