12. I'm a stubborn, persistent person.
I won't ever think, or say, that Kucinich "can't" win. I'll concede that he may NOT win, for the reasons you mention above, but that doesn't mean that he "can't."

It just means that I continue to hold candidates and elected officials to different, higher standards than the majority of my fellow democrats, and that the effort to achieve real positive change will go on for my lifetime and beyond.

If DK "can't" win, then I can't, either. I won't live to see most of my personal goals achieved, because Democrats that actually support those goals "can't" be elected. Why would I bother to participate at all? I think DK can "win." I think every time he gains a cosponsor for HR 676 he "wins." I think that every time someone hears him who hasn't had the opportunity to do so before, he "wins."

Instead, I will, in my own stubborn, persistent way, "stay the course." I'll continue to support candidates for office that support me.

I win when I walk my talk.

I lose when I give up, and when I buy into the "can't win" mentality.
