clickyThink he'll run as an Independent, thereby spliting the Dem vote and giving "Joe the Plumber" a seat in the House?

I saw that. He was always a nut-job. I bet he does not run, he only got 36% of the vote.

Gerrymandering sucks. Your districts should be as close to a grid as possible.

I think Kucinich has way too much intelligence and way too little drama queenism to turn into a 3d party attention whore.

Although Kucinich is far to the left of me (and i'm pretty far to the left), I like the guy for the same reasons I like Ron Paul, Russ Feingold, Olympia Snowe, McCain, etc. They are/were absolutely independent thinkers and aren't pushed around by party leaders.

LoL. No drama? He was way anti-war left, and wanted to impeach Cheney.I weep for the "Dept. of Peace." A dream that will never be. :crybaby:https://kucinich.hou...e/?IssueID=1564

In Illinois I think it is Jesse Jackson it's district starts at the lakefront and runs out to Kankakee farmland. Both sides should be slapped for this crap

It's a damn shame that Kucinich won't be around any more. He's a man of principle with a wife so far out of his league as to give hope to all of us.Here in NC we are masters of gerrymandering. Check out our twelfth district. This is the version that was ok'd by the supreme court. The original in 1993 was even more absurd:Posted Image

Heh. When we were in Chicago, our district had a strip that was 5 feet wide running down the middle of the highway to connect the hood and the burbs.[nostalgia]That was the first time I voted against Obama....[/nostalgia]
