That truly sucks.

He is all ready on the ballots here though. I think I'll still vote for him. ;-)

I have known Dennis since we lived less than two blocks apart in Cleveland Ohio where he and his family are from. He is a great person though I don't think he is ready to lead the nation yet. He was 21 at the time. He sure had a lot of things to overcome in his life and he is a star in my books.
Respectfully

21? Argh...I crine at some of my earnest naivte in my 20s ;-) Personally, I go by the view that the only job one is ready for is the one you already have (maybe). Every new job is a stretch to draw one's best into it and learn through and out of views that fit earlier experience and don't fit the coming challenges. We're all works in progress.

For me, Kucinich fairly reeks of integrity and a common sense clarity on the issues that goes beyond a PR maven's "common sense" and grips hard on my experience of having to actually achieve outcomes through systems. That's what government is all about.

So, if ready to lead the nation is a factor of playing the game, I'd agree with you. If it is a matter of changing the game, well, not so sanguine. At the same time, I know first hand how difficult it is to bring change into organisations with a long established way of being. One hopes to leave a legacy that moves it a step or two along the way...real change takes time and there is rarely enough continguous time to realize the change.

There would be ramifications of a Kucinich presidency. Forces would fight back, and perhaps not in obvious or straightforward ways. Disasters might arise, attributed to A, but secretly caused by B. Would a fickle public remain firm? Unlikely. Nonethless, it would be a step to restore the integrity of the USA--and that embodies a host of other issues..is there a more important contribution to make?

Maybe he'll go independent. Or maybe he'll fcus on getting his colleagues to remember their oaths and do their jobs.

I agree with John. He should go Independent. He has some good practical ideas. Democratic national party is an autocratic party. It lost it's credibility and do not have the capacity to unite. Is the Democratic leadership learning from the Republican leadership? If I were a democrat, I will definitely hire a republican consultant to teach me uniting skills.

All the disenchanted democratic political office holders should quit the party and form Democratic(P/U); PU for progressive and united. Than the independents will have a voice.

Cheers,

Ernie

Yes, but I still don't understand why someone should have to change party affiliation? I mean, after all, Lieberman is an Independent.

He just officially joined McCain's campaign. So see, party names don't matter.

Because who you are and what you believe always shines through beyond it.

I like Obama's style of leadership and his mind set on uniting the country. Maybe he can split the democratic party and make it a "United democratic party" and shed the old party leadership. Right now he is under the autocratic umbrella of the democratic party.

I give lot's of credit to senator Lieberman to break ranks with the democrats and go independent. I remember voting for him on VP ticket along with Gore.

Cheers,

Ernie

But Ernie, this is what I mean. Lieberman didn't "break ranks" with anyone by changing his party name. He became a conservative.

Don't let the title fool you- he officially joined McCain's campaign.
