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.
