Though they like to think they do. There is underway campaign finance reform, ethics reform already passed, k street interest and lobbyists are who we are fighting against. Democrats will set the agenda. You act like everything will be the same as it is now except with Kucinich as president. We are driving republicans and their corporate interests out of politics which is why we need a Kucinich in there. Voted against the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the war funding bill, the authorization to wire tap. the FISA amendment and was the only one brave enough to introduce articles of impeachment against Dick Cheney. It seems you are saying he's too good for president and would not listen to the people or compromise. He is the only one who is listening to the people and is willing to compromise as much as 'we the people' are. Please take another look at him as president with a democratic congress...We need this kind of change, a man not beholding to corporate interests. We need Kucinich, it's time for a major change. No one is the perfect candidate but he comes the closest and the reasons for voting for him heavily out weigh the reasons not to vote for him. I don't understand why people so easily dismiss him unless it's like in high school when someone isn't "cool" enough but really doesn't have a legitimate reason to be excluded from the group. I was the same way with Kucinich and finally looked and listen and asked myself why I was so willing to dismiss him when he was the only one voting or talking the right way on everything. Then I thought what is wrong with me? Have I been conditioned some how to reject the very one who is saying everything I believe. Made no sense so now I'm supporting Kucinich, not because I dislike the others but because I agree most with Kucinich.
