54. If that makes Kucininch a bad congressman
then the same logic will make the majority of republicans good congressmen since they got all kinds of bills passed--nevermind that they're all shit bills that did tremendous harm,

OTOH, if you look at Kucinich's speeches, he's been on the correct side of just about every fight. Had the other democrats stood up with him, we'd not be wasting so much money and so many lives in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. We'd have a better energy policy, we'd have a better education system, we'd have better just about everything that the congress has touched. The healthcare fight would be over and we'd all be covered. Maybe we ought to be pounding on the appeasement wing of the democrats.

Kucinich is a man who'd rather be right than powerful.

You know, applying the OP's logic to Obama vs. Bush, Bush was a better president because he got a whole lot more done in the same amount of time. Either we're all on the wrong team, or the OP's logic is bullshit.
