106. I think the thing most of the pundits don't get
Kucinich has some hope of drawing in some of the nearly 80 million who don't vote regularly. Sure, the media will manage to convince a lot of the middle level voters to vote for someone else. But for all those people who haven't seen a candidate for a long time that represents their interests, I think it might be an awakening for them. If ever there were a time that we might have a chance to move back to the left, it would be now. The dissatisfaction with Republican corruption, perversion, and hypocrisy is at an all time high.

One other good thing may be that the MSM will probably be so anti-Kucinich that they may overplay their hand, and expose their conservative bias. They've worked for a long time to cultivate this pretend-liberal status. It could work to our advantage. I'm going to vote for him. I've always voted for the guy whose positions I liked best, the rest be damned. Most electable? That's fiction anyway, as we saw with Kerry, he was a pitiful candidate. Many saw him as more electable than Dean, but he ended up being a mealy mouthed sap.
