Apollo 4 on column of fire

Dennis makes Thom and Ralph scratch their heads

Thom Hartmann and Ralph Nader are on the radio having no idea why Dennis Kucinich would advise his Iowa supporters to go with Obama. Both favor Edwards (though Nader doesn’t rule out running on his own). That Nader would favor Edwards is pretty easy to understand, since Edwards is running against the corporate oligarchs; this also is a reason Hartmann gives, and it helps float my boat, as well.

I think we can credit Kucinich’s ‘naive’ side, which is both a weakness and a strength—it was a ‘naive’ young man who went ahead and let Cleveland go into default. John Kerry was once a naive young man, who fought against the Vietnam War, but he lost his naivete, and so lost his strength.
