sure i plan to vote for whomever the democrats nominate this year. as
al sharpton said, "on their worst day, edwards and kerry are better than bush on his best." comments like that and "there should be a constitutional amendment that says presidents can't lie!" make me
love that guy in a way i didn't really expect to. hearing al and dennis at the debate the other night made me realize something. while they tell the truth which may be obvious to some of us, for a lot of america this is the first exposure they're getting to progressive arguments. both of these guys seem to speak genuinely from the heart, while the
two 'front-runners' are geeky, stiff and rehearsed, like politicians. (oh well, that's what they are...)mainstream tv and radio don't have voices like sharpton and kucinich on very often. this is a rare and great chance to have the future we imagine introduced to the whole population. that said, super tuesday is the day kerry will likely become the shoo-in democratic nominee, not bad to have a vietnam veteran who organized to end THAT war as president. but i want to reward and thank dennis kucinich for standing up against THIS war (not to mention the many other obvious things we care about that he speaks to)...a rare and brave position among today's elected officials. i want his and al sharpton's messages, my concerns, to live beyond tuesday, in the democratic party, so there is no excuse - and especially, no need whatsoever - for a single misplaced vote for ralph nader. i plan to vote for dennis kucinich on tuesday. if kerry is the nominee, i'll vote for him in november. but i want him to create a department of peace and name dennis its secretary. 'vote your heart or your heart can never win.'
