Dennis K is Out

Cleveland, Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich anounced today that he is “dropping out of the Democratic race for president.”

Kucinich will make the announcement Friday at a news conference in Cleveland. […]

“I want to continue to serve in Congress,” he said.

Kucinich said he will not endorse another Democrat in the primary.

The bottom-line for Dennis is he’s “facing four challengers in the Democratic congressional primary March 4.” Earlier in the week,  Kucinich “made an urgent appeal on his Web site for funds for his re-election.”

Rival Joe Cimperman has been critical of Kucinich for focusing too much time outside of his district while campaigning for president.

Dennis has spunk and a real measure of “audacity” in my book, because he’s pushed for things in Congress way ahead of the curve. Kucinich has “proposed a Department of Peace, backed universal health care and supported gay marriage.” And he has also “pushed for impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney.” Good luck Dennis. We need you in Congress.

  1. Poor Dennis the Menace. Well-intentioned, innovative, popular in some quarters, (he did win the county/island of Maui for the Presidential Primary in 2004), he didn’t do squat for his own district.

    Now he has to really fight for his job. A primary battle that big is no small thing and he will need his nationwide supporters to help with funding the fight.’

    I wish him well as a congressman. As a Presidential contender he was all issues and no chance.

    Kucinich did the country a service by just saying what he did. Some ideas need to be out in public for awhile before they get accepted, and someone has to start it.
