41. Kucinich is far too radical for me
I'm sure he's a good person, but politically speaking, I don't like him. I support Dean and I'm not a liberal. I'm a middle of the road registered Independent "swing voter". You really need to realize that people don't support Dean because they are under some false impression that he's a liberal. You also need to understand that the "liberal base" you are used to has been essentially over-run by people who aren't "liberals" but just have been woken up by Dean and care enough to get out there and support him. The "base" has changed, and until people truly understand this, they don't understand why Dean is the best chance to beat Bush. As long as Democrats vote for him, all the new voters he's getting involved and excited will easily put him over the top. There is NO way Bush can beat Dean.
