Dennis Kucinich has long been known as the conscience of the U.S. Congress and is a hero to many on the left.
Vehemently opposed to the Iraq invasion, continually pressing for protection of labor rights and for serious action on climate change, against corporate trade agreements, staunchly supporting single payer health care, Dennis has championed the entire progressive agenda as it has, again and again, piece by piece, gone down to defeat.
There is a name for someone who fights good fights, is always on the right side of a losing issue, is always ready hold the little guy’s hand when he gets garroted by multinational conglomerates.
The word for such an excellent fellow is “loser.”
Dennis, like us, is a loser.
But unlike some of us, Dennis is also a good loser.
