» Roll Call: The Boy Mayor’s Last Stand

An updated on Dennis Kucinich vs Marcy "the normal one" Kaptur ...

The new district’s numbers aren’t in Kucinich’s favor, but that’s never stopped the two-time failed presidential candidate from running before. Yet even the west Cleveland Congressman admits he’s not sure who will win the March 6 primary.

“This is a contest, and I think one must be optimistic but at the same time cautious about the outcome,” Kucinich said in an interview. “I don’t know how this is going to turn out.”

Republicans redrew Ohio’s Congressional map last year after the Buckeye State lost two seats because of lagging population growth. The makeup of the new district favors Kaptur because she currently represents more of it — a fact that worries some of Kucinich’s famous friends.

“I’ve supported him ever since he was mayor of Cleveland,” Larry Flynt, a longtime Kucinich backer and former Ohio resident, told Roll Call. “I hope he does [win], but you have to call them as you see them, and it doesn’t look too good for him.”

No complaints outta me ... I've been more of a Kaptur fan since way back. But still. While we pontificate on "what happened to the Tea Party", is it not also worth wondering what ever happened to the Kossacks & Deaniacs?

  1. Surely Obama will have a Cabinet position for him … State … Treasury … Commerce … Defense. Homeland Security? No, saving that for Barney Frank …
