Strip away all the faux controversy over whether CNN planted the stupid "diamonds or pearls" question to make Hillary look good or because they are just as sexist as the rest of the world: who really made sense in the Democratic candidates debate in Las Vegas? Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio. He's moving up in the polls of Democratic voters, although the party bosses would love to exclude him from the debates.
Is it because he grew up working class and often homeless as the oldest of seven children? Is it because he knows what it is like to take a principled stand in spite of the political cost, as he did when he was mayer of Cleveland and stood up to the banks (who later were found guilty of criminal conspiracy)? Is it because he's short, has big ears, and is a vegan, and doesn't care that people have been making fun of him throughout his political career? He voted against the war, against the Patriot Act, and if you look at his record, he votes consistently with his values. He introduced the resolution to impeach Cheney. If only the other candidates had his guts. Check it out:
