Dennis Kucinich To Fight No More Forever

by Philip Baruth

Dennis Kucinich will announce tomorrow that he’s ending his second bid for the Presidency, and we here at VDB are unexpectedly saddened by the loss. Kucinich was never a contender, to our eye, but he was always a model of honesty, even when it meant electoral suicide. Gracious in the face of defeat, upbeat in the face of insurmountable odds, the man managed to move us, even as he failed to ignite a movement. Live long and prosper, Dennis.
