July 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic Presidential Candidate and Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich is being treated in a Cleveland area hospital suffering from the severe effects of apparent food poisoning.
Kucinich became ill late on Sunday night while traveling from Cleveland to Ft. Lauderdale, FL where he was scheduled to address the International Longshoremen's Association (ILA) national convention on Monday morning. He was accompanied on the trip by his wife Elizabeth.
Despite experiencing severe gastrointestinal symptoms consistent with food poisoning, he proceeded with his scheduled appearance at the ILA event. Immediately following his speech, he flew back home to Cleveland where he was examined, diagnosed, and admitted to the hospital for inpatient treatment. He is expected to be released, fully recovered, within the next few days.
The name and location of the hospital are not being disclosed out of deference to other patients and to prevent any disruption to hospital operations.

Musta been that bad clam his new wife tried to make him eat.
A message from her heinous for spilling the beans on hers and Edwards plans???
His wife did it. She’s hoping to hook up with Fred Thompson.
The munchkin munched on something he shouldn’t have?
I want to make a joke about his trophy wife’s ceviche, but I can’t bring myself to do it.
Maybe he actually listened to a tape of himself speaking.
Organic means it’s full of crap...
She plays rough.
He was hang’n out with his buddies, the Keebler Elves, and ate too many cookies.
Yeh...But I don’t wanta say it and I’ll betcha he thought it.
Kucinich sidelined? How could you tell?
Heh, heh, you said ceviche.
Did he make his new wife his beneficiary?
Coulda been a bad snapper.
Dudes, THINK about it like a MOONBAT! Do you really KNOW anyone who ever got food poisoning? Things like this just don’t HAPPEN! It must have been Cheney’s hit guys!
