15. Not much happens because most voted the same way...
Monday, November 26, 2007 /

"In a new ad blitz in Iowa today, U.S. Sen. and Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden exclaims about the wonderful support his national security and foreign affairs strategies are getting from Senators Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Chris Dood; former Senator John Edwards; and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson...

Deliberately - and revealingly - missing from the political cast of characters in Bidens approving/adoring love-fest among the Democratic candidates is Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich.

The Kucinich for President campaign issued the following statement this evening:

The Congressman has the utmost respect for Senator Biden and his years of service to the nation. He just happens to be wrong on some very major issues; and, if the other candidates agree with him, then theyre wrong, too.

They voted to authorize the war in Iraq. They approved continued funding of the war. They voted for the Patriot Act. They supported trade agreements that have had a devastating impact on American workers. They have failed to challenge the President and the Vice President for their unrepentant and continued violations of the U.S. Constitution.

Theres a reason that Congressman Kucinich was the only candidate deliberately excluded from the ad blitz, said his campaign. Joe Biden knows, and the other Democratic candidates know, that Dennis Kucinich doesnt walk their line..."
