Dennis Kucinich – the New Ralph Nader: Introduces Motion to Impeach Cheney

Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) made a procedural maneuver to bring up his resolution to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney in the next two days, despite opposition from both the Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.  Many Republicans, initially against the motion have now sided with Kucinich.

Depending on how many Presidential hopeful Dems. side with this motion will have a direct impact on the 2008 election.

My prediction is that Kucinich’s following will increase, due to his already low support – he can really only go up.  On the other hand, if major Democrats (Obama, Edwards, Clinton) side with it, I think it will lower their chances of winning the general election, because they supported something that didn’t work (even Pelosi isn’t for this – he WON’T be impeached).  They’ll be seen as just wasting more time after passing how many non-binding resolutions.

Dennis Kucinich could be the “Ralph Nader” – the liberal who stole Democrat’s much needed ’08 votes.

If the Democrats are smart, they’ll drop this now and just give our little UFO-seeing friend from Ohio his 15 minutes of fame.
