Pro Gay Marriage Candidate Kucinich Drops Out

Democrat Dennis Kucinich abandoned his presidential bid Friday to focus on a tough race for re-election to Congress.

He said he entered the race because the Democratic Party wasn't pushing hard enough to end the Iraq war. As a presidential candidate, he proposed a Department of Peace, backed universal health care and supported gay marriage. He also pushed for the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney.

"I won't be president, but I can continue to fight for these important issues as the United States congressman representing the community that is first in my heart, Cleveland, Ohio," he said.

Kucinich made an urgent appeal on his Web site this week for congressional campaign contributions as "the only candidate who can't be bought - 'cause he's not for sale."

Such sad news about Kucinich...although, I guess Obama is a suitable second choice.
