18. Hmm - "Kucinich SAID" - also talk, no? Talk is all a candidate has.
Edited on Tue Oct-09-07 12:38 PM by yellowcanine
Why is it when Hillary says what we say we want her to say she gets skewered for that as much as when she says something we don't want her to say? I think we need to cut Hillary a little slack here. Like everything else in his adminsistration, (including the so-called "Hillary" health care plan), NAFTA was a Bill Clintion initiative. Yet many here will lionize Bill Clinton and trash Hillary for positions that if anything are closer to our positions than what Bill's were. I don't understand it.

On edit I would also add that talk is particularly cheap when it comes from a candidate who has no real chance of winning - the positions of Kucinich will never be tested in the real world because he is not going to get elected.
