Dennis Kucinich Surprisingly Drops Out of the Presidential Race

January 25, 2008

In a surprise move Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has decided to drop out of the Democratic nomination race.  The move came as he is facing a tough primary for the Democratic nomination for his House seat.  The former mayor of Cleveland and 6-term Congressman has 4 opponents going into the March 4th primary.  Joe Cimperman, one of his opponents and a Cleveland City Council member, has accused Kucinich of being a “part-time Congressman” who has been more concerned about pursuing the Presidency than being a Congressman.

This is all coming right after Kucinich posted “An Urgent Personal Appeal” on his Congressional election website.

Kucinich now plan on introducing a movement to impeach President Bush, similar to the movement that he made to impeach Vice President Cheney last year.

Is Kucinich a “part-time Congressman”?  Perhaps.  But I think the Congress accomplishes more when he’s gone than when he’ introducing motions to impeach people who we KNOW won’t get impeached.  Stop wasting the Congress’s time, Mr. Kucinich and introduce a real bill.

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

November 6, 2007

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.
