    trashing the bushmunchkins and shining a positive light on all three major Dem candidates. It's great to finally see John Edwards getting some positive press (also an article today in Salon).

    With Dennis Kucinich announcing that he is leaving the presidential race I imagine many of his supporters will  be taking a serious look at which one of the top three they will support as their second choice. Just a 2%-3% boost for Edwards from Kucinich supporters may very well push him over the viability threshold in some states come Super Tuesday and help him maintain momentum all the way to the convention.

    I have always admired DK's stand on the issues and now he is leaving to fight a well-financed DLC primary challenger. Dennis Kucinich is a powerful progressive voice in Congress and he has my strong support in his campaign to retain his seat.

    The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. -FZ

    •  Kucinich isn't going to endorse anyone for a (0+ / 0-)

      reason.  Although no one is as progressive as him (at least he will never allow anyone to claim the progressive mantle) I believe he thinks the party has moved in a much more progressive direction and he sees the election of Hillary or Barack as a monumental historical event that he will not get in the way of.  (He also needs the votes of white women in his contested primary in Ohio;)).
