Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich drew a crowd of more than 500 people Friday night to a fundraiser at which he preached the ethic of peace.

Kucinich, a former mayor of Cleveland now in his fifth term in the House of Representatives, urged a crowd that filled the main floor of the Albemarle County Office Building’s Lane Auditorium to “re-imagine our capacity for peace.”

A smattering of a few dozen people sat upstairs in the auditorium balcony at the fundraiser that carried a general admission of $20, or $10 for students. A reception prior to the event lasted half an hour for a small roomful of those who contributed $500 or more.

An advocate of impeaching Vice President Cheney and President Bush for the way they took American troops into war in Iraq, Kucinich compared Bush to the creature “in a Yiddish proverb that says, ‘To a worm in a horseradish, the whole world looks like horseradish.’ … Everywhere he looks, he sees a cause for war.”

  1. Remember everyone, We the people choose our president through the voting process. Dennis is a Democrat, if he wins the primaries and caucus’, the Democratic Party will have to recognize him. Get out the primary and causus vote for Kucinich. Let’s use what is left of our citizen power to change direction, Before we can’t. Bush is signing a lot of executive orders and the powers have consolidated greatly to the presidential office. If most of our representatives won’t challenge this Administration then we citizens have the responsibility to claim our Nation. Use this holiday season to talk to friends and family, appeal to their conscience. Do we want our children and grandchildren growing up in a world of endless war and endless fear??? Or do we want to provide them with stability and economic justice. Time is of the essence. We need to sieze the day. Dennis Kucinich is offering a vision for the future to change direction with profound effects that could bring the world to peace and we can make it happen. He is electable when we elect him.
