While it’s sadly too late to do him any good, my keen radar has detected a huge Dennis Kucinich groundswell. First, Christopher Hitchens lauds him in Slate:
Dennis Kucinich is the sort of guy who we need in politics. He thinks long-term, and he doesn’t think that in the short or long term it pays to trade principles for compromises. That’s the attitude one wants in a president, of any party. This, however, is probably not the year for a man who basically believes in the downsizing of the United States.
My long take is that I’d support Kucinich over Clark if I had to. Clark is simply too crazy to be president of the U.S.
I’m registered to vote in Virginia, which has its primary tomorrow. My impulse had been to vote for Al Sharpton. Now, I’m seriously considering Kucinich.
