9. I heard a rumor about three candidates
Kucinich, Dodd and Gravel. I heard a rumor that they actually may have some ideas about issues affecting our country. But I can't confirm it because ABC, like all the other media outlets in this country won't give them a whole lot of free airtime. And that needs to change.
