Dennis Kucinich said he was unwilling to encourage Americans to have illegal immigrants arrested. NPR
The Bryant Park Project, December 5, 2007 · On issue after issue, says Richard Wolffe of Newsweek, Dennis Kucinich's views have gone from fringe to mainstream. That pattern became apparent again at NPR's Democratic presidential debate yesterday, Wolffe says.
Kucinich notions that once seemed crazy to the Democratic Party ended up front and center Tuesday, Wolffe says, and NPR's debate format gave the Ohio congressman a chance to shine. Kucinich is generally considered among the darkest of dark horses in the race. Yesterday, he spoke out about his opposition to liberalized trade with China and to the war in Iraq.
"We're borrowing money from China to finance the war in Iraq," Kucinich argued.
Wolffe says the idea of a Kucinich administration makes no sense to him, but he can't help noticing a new vogue for Kucinich's opinions.
"Think what you like about Kucinich and UFOs, but this Democratic field has essentially moved to the Kucinich position on trade, on Iraq, on a whole range of things where people thought he was a real outlier," he says. "They're all pretty much in agreement now, when it comes to some of these big issues like trade, like diplomacy and war. And they are where Dennis Kucinich is."
Draft Kucinich !!!!
“Ron Paul light”
“they are where Dennis Kucinich is”
are they kiddin’ ?
This idiot could hide under a front yard mushroom
Golum wins the day!!!!!!!!!/Just Asking - seoul62.........
Will the populace actually listen?
They got the word “drift” right at least.
Actually he said he’s willing to have ALIENS arrested, but he meant Klingons and Romulans.
I hear ‘ya, I hope they nominate that moonbat.
At least Ron Paul wants to to do something about immigration...by elminiating it all together. Both are whacky.
.."drift?..more like orbit"
I'm a flake! I've always been a flake!
A race of Paul vs. Kucinich would be really funny.
LOL - yeah, except that one of them would be elected...
The interesting thing is this article is saying Kucinich hasn’t changed his positions, the rest of the dims have drifted over to his way of thinking. Or at least they’re being more honest about it.
The Kucinich Moment.
Go Dennis Go!
Say what you will about Kucinich, but he’s the only non flip-flopper running of the dems.
My dream election would be Kucinich vs Hunter. The people would have an actual choice of two guys who actually say what they believe in.
