  • My favorite democratic politician

    What's their to say about Dennis Kucinich? To answer that question; a lot. If we had this guy in office; he'd be the best thing in the white house since John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, or Franklin D. Roosevelt. There is not a policy of his I don't disagree with. If only he won the democratic nomination; that would've been awesome. I hope that he runs in 2016; and if he won the nomination; that would be the best thing that happened to america in a while. Economy, war, taxes, anything; you name it. He'd fix anything that you think would think need fixing. My dream ticket will always be me/Kucinich or Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich or even vice versa. Kucinich for President 2016!moreless
