    Democrat Kucinich Quits White House Race
    By JOE MILICIA 57 minutes ago

    CLEVELAND (AP) Democrat Dennis Kucinich is abandoning his second, long-shot bid for the White House as he faces a tough fight to hold onto his other job U.S. congressman.

    In an interview with Cleveland's Plain Dealer, the six-term House member said he was quitting the race and would make a formal announcement on Friday.

    "I will be announcing that I'm transitioning out of the presidential campaign," Kucinich said. "I'm making that announcement tomorrow about a new direction."

    Kucinich has received little support in his presidential bid; he got 1 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary and was shut out in the Iowa caucuses. He did have a devoted following.

    Kucinich, 61, is facing four challengers in the Democratic congressional primary March 4, and earlier this week he made an urgent appeal on his Web site for funds for his re-election. Rival Joe Cimperman has been critical of Kucinich for focusing too much time outside of his district while campaigning for president.

    His decision comes a month after the death of his youngest brother, Perry Kucinich.

    Kucinich said he will not endorse another Democrat in the primary.

    Kucinich brought the same sense of idealism to his second run for president as he did in his first bid. He said he was entering the race again because the Democratic Party wasn't pushing hard enough to end the Iraq war.

But is he still moving forward with the recount of the New Hampshire primary votes?

He'll just run again in four years. And four years after that. He's like the Energizer Bunny....or Lyndon LaRouche.

Seriously, I find it kinda sad that someone with such idealism has turn himself into something of a joke.

This sucks. I took a little quiz about campaign issues, and the only candidate that I had no disagreements with was Kucinich. You know that ALL the other candidates support military action against Iran? That just blows my mind.

His campaign ran out of money to fund the recount on Wednesday. Which is probably the same reason the campaign itself stopped. - CMLLBlog

I don't know if I agree with this move, but this sure seems like something that would be very easy to spin against the Bush administration. Reprinted here from the New York Times U.S. Fights Verdict Backing Ex-P.O.W.
