Ron's an interesting guy. A libertarian running under a Republican ticket in Texas. Won by only a small margin against a young 30 year old Democrat first time runner his current seat. Which given his experience and that it was in Texas, that's horrible.

He'll get nowhere in his presidential run...

Is it the irony that he's speaking about poverty, or that he's getting paid more than most other speakers of his stature that this made news?

when you're talking on large scales, 2 million can be something to ignore.

if 75% feel one way, the other 25% can go scratch their ass.

So Fred Thompson is in

so conservatives can have a candidate they can support?





His current wife is 4 years younger than his daughter.

Gotta love those "family values."

Well, there is a 31 year age gap between Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich.

Except he's never run on family values or any kind of conservative views. And he's seen as a joke, whereas Thompson is the last great hope it seems.

This was pretty funny-other than that watching that Republican debate was excruciating. Ron Paul is interesting though-and Tancredo is a nut job

Essex girl fills White House race with lurve





Elizabeth, 6ft, towers over her congressman husband Dennis
Sarah Baxter, Washington

AN Essex girl may be the first lady with a tongue stud to have set her sights on the White House. The wife of Dennis Kucinich, a left-wing Democratic congressman and 2008 presidential candidate, is a 29-year-old hippie chick from Upminster at the end of London Underground's District line.

Elizabeth Kucinich, n�e Harper, has been on the stump with her husband, a 60-year-old anti-war campaigner from Cleveland, Ohio, mingling with the likes of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama backstage at the Democratic presidential debates. "There's a kind of camaraderie," she said.

A 6ft tall willowy redhead who has been compared to Arwen Evenstar, the Lord of the Rings character, she towers over her diminutive husband. "Who cares?" she said in an interview. "I like wearing high heels so I'm used to being taller than most men I stand next to."

Nor is she bothered by their 31-year age difference. "I have never noticed it at all," she said. "Dennis is a very mature but young-at-heart gentleman and we complement each other."

Kucinich met her husband-to-be two years ago when she visited his office in the House of Representatives with her boss

as a volunteer worker for the American Monetary Institute, an offbeat group dedicated to reforming the "unjust monetary system".

It was love at first sight for both of them. Immediately after their meeting, Dennis Kucinich phoned a friend and said: "I've met her [my future wife]."

He was mesmerised to receive a business e-mail from Harper with her usual signature line from Kama Sutra, one of her favourite films: "Knowing love, I shall allow all things to come and go, to be as supple as the wind and take everything that comes with great courage. My heart is as open as the sky."
the complete article is here


A first Lady we could look up to

Wow she's beautiful. I love that he's confident enough to not care about the height difference and not wear lifts in his shoes like *cough* Tom Cruise.

Is it odd that I don't see ANY of the candidates, Democrat OR Republican, as electable? None of them stand out to me with that quality. I think in '08 everyone should write in Bill Clinton or Bono or something

I love what Jon Stewart recently said about Rudy:

"Hey, Giuliani, if you love the War on Terror so much, why don't you MARRY IT???"

He then said something about they'd probably get a divorce in a couple of years anyway.

There was a full-page picture of Rudy in The New Republic recently that reminded me of Mussolini...the clenched jaw, the expression. Strange, scary man.

I personally am still backing Edwards and am tired of the hit job the press seems to be doing on him. They want him to take a vow of poverty and get his hair done at Supercuts.

Personally, I love it. I don't know if you're talking about Bill O'Reilly or not, but he is exposing Edwards, and I absolutely agree with him that he is no longer a contender in the race. Last night Bill showed Edwards saying what a great guy Danny Glover is, right after he got back from hugging Hugo Chavez.

My guy Rudy is of course being treated unfairly. All the media seems to care about is his marriage. Funny how when the president of the United States cheated on his wife everyone was like "Well it's his personal life and it's none of our business," yet when a guy is married a few times we never stop hearing about it.

and if that's more important to you than dealing with poverty, if a gaff is something you're willing to judge an entire career by and discard, you know, substance, then i think we're all in trouble.

it's the Republicans who seem to think that someone's sex life/marital issues are appropriate material upon which to judge one's candidacy. it's the Republicans who want the president to be an exemplar of moral certitude and chastity. it's the Republicans who have stated that they want to regulate what goes on behind closed doors.

and, honey, what do you mean "everyone was like ..." there was an impeachment. remember how Bush was going to restore "honor and dignity" to the White House? (oh, the irony)

and i don't give a shit about Rudy's sex life. or his many marriages. or his failed personal relationships. or the fact that his son hates him. or the fact that he loves to dress in drag.

it is YOUR guys, the Republicans, who seem to think these things matter. and did so in the most embarassing way possible with the whole Lewinsky debacle.

I watched the Republican debate the other day. It is glaringly obvious that none of these people are fit to be president. Some, like Tancredo, are complete lunatics. Huckabee doesn't know if the world was created in 6 days because he "wasn't there" to see it. That third dude also doesn't believe in evolution. Stunning ignorance and half of them are embarrassing xenophobes who should have no place on public airwaves.

If the election was held today, no Republican would even come close to sniffing victory. Rightfully so.

I tend to agree with you here, as much as I like to think I support Obama, I want to wait until next year when the real race begins before I make any sort of real decision.

There are just too many candidates at the moment.

I could say the same things about the Democrats.

I question your assertion that a Rep would stand no chance if the election were today. You're simply incorrect. The polls I have seen shows a very close race between the top candidates (Rudy, McCain, Hillary, Obama). The notion that a Democrat is going to run away with this race is flat out wrong- maybe wishful thinking on your part, but it's flat out wrong.
