9. Kucinich is tremendous on his positions, but to be a good
candidate also implies a lot of sharp political skills--skills that can overcome your detractors. It isn't fair that Kucinich does not get the attention he deserves, but it is true that he has not found a way to win over his detractors and to turn a liability into a positive. So, from that point of view, arguably there has not been a better "candidate" in recent history than the Big Dawg, himself.

I like Dennis a great deal. He is tough in his own right. But, I don't see how he will overcome the forces that conspire to defeat him. So, he isn't the best presidential candidate from that respect at all.
