I just love Dennis Kucinich. Maybe part of it is because he is familiar to me. I have heard his name since I was little, circa the 1970’s, as a kid in Cleveland Heights. But I think it is more than that. To hear a person running for president speak his truth like he does, not fearful of how his words will “play out politically”, not always strategizing every word for the corporate interests that he will (not) be serving once in the White House – these are the things I love about him. He is a peaceful warrior with a sense of humor. And his message, of course, makes perfect sense.
I know he is little and his suit’s don’t fit, but isn’t that better than the tailored suit-wearing clowns we turn to time and time again to lead this country? I think so.
