    •  I would guess (0+ / 0-)

      that Dennis Kucinich voted against the SCHIP bill because he doesn't think it provides enough funding.

      I would hope that he would vote to override the veto, however.

      I deeply respect, alone among the Democratic presidential candidates, Rep. Kucinich's strength of character and commitment to principle. Too bad the rest of the more "electable" candidates don't have a fraction of his character.

      •  Actually he voted against it (0+ / 0-)

        because it does not cover immigrant children. I am sure that he will change his vote on the override motion, though. Even on Pelosi's Iraq supplemental, which he hated and campaigned against, he voted "present" on the override instead of "no".
