CNN bores me. It's so repetitive.

There also might be itchy fingers on the trap doors when it comes to the top tier candidates...

Just you know, for, equal time....

I dunno, I just think in a nomination race (for both parties) where the most interesting and less evil (read: authoritarian) candidates have been the non-major ones, Blitzer tried to set Obama and Clinton after each other for what seemed like 45 minutes before letting anyone else answer a question. I really hate mainstream US media at the moment.

Ya know, if Kucininich had a vote for every time I've heard someone say, "I agree with him but don't think he's electable...."

let's not give Rudy any ideas -- i'm sure he'd waterboard Hillary in the interest of national security, because if she isn't waterboarded, then terrorists are going to come to Iowa and kill every last farmer.

I really hate that. I think he's legitimate.

precisely. i know plenty of people agree with him but are too chicken to vote for him. i mean it's obvious: he's electable if people vote for him.

Yes, electable if America was 51% socialist, he's to the Democrats as Ron Paul is to the GOP - too extreme for the bulk and looses the margins that win elections. The value in such candidates is getting such ideas out there, although i'm sure that Cheney in a dress won't be any worse than Bush.

I'm going through the tedious process of researching the candidates' actual voting records--mostly because I don't get inspired by candidates whose voting records don't support their election season speeches--and I've been pleased on many of Kucinich's votes--less than pleased on others. But in general, I find his votes in line with his rhetoric.

See, in honor of you guys, I checked him out first. I should know in time for registration deadline whether or not I really support someone enough to change from independent back to democrat in time for the primaries.

But to save me a little time and much tedium, can any of the Kucinich supporters direct me to information on how he intends to execute his wish lists. Being absolutely undecided, I have a ton of candidates to sort through and it appears to me that the debates are a waste of time right now.

He had a specific plan for Iraq, if I recall. Like one of those step-by-step plans.

Iraq certainly interests me. I'm equally interested in domestic issues.

Never mind, though. His website is fairly comprehensive for a first look.
