Dennis Kucinich for President Campaign, 2004 - Official Website: "DENNIS KUCINICH: THE PROGRESSIVE CHOICE

"As a candidate for President, I offer a different vision for America, one which separates me from the other candidates. I am the only candidate who will take this country away from fear and war and tax giveaways, and use America's peace dividend for guaranteed health care for all, ending health care for profit. I am the only candidate who will stop the privatization of social security and bring the retirement age back to 65. As President, I will cancel NAFTA and the WTO, restore our manufacturing jobs, save our family farms, create full employment programs. I will repeal the Patriot Act to regain for all Americans the sacred right of privacy in our homes, our libraries, our schools."

An interesting platform, some of the things which urgently need to be done. Which is precisely why he cannot win or even win the Democrat nomination. A Democrat could defeat Bush, but it seems the choice must be between the 'anti-war' warmonger General Clark (backed by the Clinton machine) and the slightly more palatable (but not anywhere as near as impressive as Kucinich) Howard Dean.
