"Wake up America," Kucinich declared from the podium of the Democratic National Convention. "In 2001 the oil companies, the war contractors and the neocon-artists seized the economy and added $4 trillion of unproductive spending to the national debt. ... Trillions of dollars for an unnecessary war paid for with borrowed money."
"This administration can tap our phones -- but they can' t tamper our creative spirit," he said. "They can open our mail, but the can' t open economic opportunities. They can track our every move, but they lost track of the economy while the cost of food, gasoline, and electricity skyrockets. Now, they have skillfully played our post 9/11 fears, and they've allowed the few to profit at the expense of the many."

Kucinich gave a very good speech, but one that is representative of the positions of the Democratic party as a whole. IMO there was no departure from the party line. If you support what Kucinich has said, vote Democratic.

I....Let me just say this a nice way...He reminds me of a angry little elf, and I can't take a thing he says to heart. Kind of like a poor mans Ross Perot. He is out of his mind. I respect him for his passion, but beyond that.. He is just a joke to most of America.
