My Candidate

So, I keep visiting other people and copying the good YouTubes they have found. Because it is important that as many people as possible see good stuff. I found this at Anything They Say. . ., and you should read the entire post, A Brief and Shining Message , by theBhc.

I supported Dennis Kucinch last election; I support him this election. It saddens me greatly that the likelihood of his getting the nomination is nonexistent. However, he is the most honest man in Washington and has no fear of speaking truth to power. The likelihood of a man who the press has decided to relegate to the sidelines and who spent parts of his childhood sleeping in the family car, with the rest of the family, ever becoming president is extremely low. But, if this were the country we were told it is, where anyone could grow up to be president, this is the man who would do it.

Sadly, they meant that a man with poverty of brains and grit could do it, but a man from a poor background could not.

I wish my sending him money would help, but sadly, we saw what happened last time, and it will surely happen again. I'll vote for him in the primary, though. And I appreciate that he is at least SAYING these things. And has been, all along.

I couldn't agree more. I first became familiar with Mr.Kucinich via an NPR series on presidential candidates prior to the 2004 elections, and he made so much sense. A few weeks later I saw a picture of him, or saw him on TV or somesuch thing and I realized that he would never earn the nomination.

But of course now there is a Mrs. Kucinich, and I think she's a neat lady.

Right. If the tallest candidate always wins, he isn't going to get there. So sad.
