13. NCOW endorses Kucinich: /


Eileen Dannemann, the director of the National Coalition of Organized Women, announced today that NCOW will back Dennis Kucinich as the Democratic Partys presidential nomination. NCOW is a coalition that has provided issue-related support for activist groups and politicians since 1992. Dennis Kucinich is a man of principle and the one candidate unlikely to compromise, Dannemann said. Compromise is only necessary when we polarize around positions rather than seek out the underlying principle. Dennis Kucinich is a man of principles.

Overcoming the rift between what we love and what we think

Dannemann said that the most disturbing and potentially debilitating concept to the success of the Kucinich campaign is our spirit of compromise. We love him with our hearts but we want Bush out of the White House. So, maybe we should vote for someone elsesomeone we think will have a better chance of winning. This split between the heart and the head must be settled at once! In our personal lives as well as in our political onesit is in the rift between what we love to do and what we think we must do in order to achieve a desired outcome, that we sabotage ourselves.

Dannemann is convinced that Kucinich can win against BushIf our collective intention and attention remains unwavering, strong and one pointed, we can participate in a quantum leap, a sudden phase transition that will be described in the history books as a miracle. Dannemann also emphasized that the outdated left/right political polarity has distracted us from the Truth entirely too long. There is no light at the end of the left/right tunnel.
