When the time came for the Nation magazine, the country’s top liberal rag, to give a presidential endorsement, they responded decisively: “In his stands on the issues, Dennis Kucinich comes closest to embodying the ideals of this magazine. A vote for him would be a principled one.”
That’s unsurprising. Kucinich is the only one running who, not only voted against the war, but voted against funding it 100 percent of the time. He has a 100 percent pro-labor, pro-gay rights, pro-environment, pro-fair trade voting record.
No candidate wins more blind-polls based on positions; no other candidate is proposing creating a European-style single-payer universal health care system – which 65 percent of Americans want.
Some people wonder why Kucinich chooses to run in such a corrupt system. When I met him, I finally understood. In his mind, he’s still just Dennis from west Cleveland, working three jobs to pull his family out of poverty.
