Cleveland Congressman Dennis Kucinich is dropping out of the Democratic race for president.

Kucinich will make the announcement Friday at a news conference in Cleveland. In an exclusive interview with Plain Dealer editors and reporters, Kucinich said he will explain his "transition" tomorrow.

"I want to continue to serve in Congress," he said.

Dennis Kucinich is a good man. I highly respect his personal character, his ideology, and his commitment to serving this nation. He was without a doubt my first choice for president as he has been in the past. Once again I am sad to see his bid come to a close. Still, it is comforting he wont just disappear but will continue to work in Congress.

Apparently, he is facing pretty strong competition for his Congressional seat. One of the reasons given for his dropping out was to replenish his campaign chest which is currently close to empty.

This is apparently true. However I remain hopeful. He has won five consecutive elections for his position in congress, the last one with 76% of the vote. Still it is true all things do come to an end, but again I am hopeful and I do not think Denis Kucinih's time has come.

Have a listen to the ATS Mix interview with Dennis and his wife. Assuming this turns out to be true I wouldn't be surprised in the least.

Dennis would have known from the outset that he stood next to no chance so it is opinion that he made his run to remind people that there is someone who feels people discontent and puts forward answers to problems that are aren't designed to take the US back to the Stone Age.
