Kucinich launches 2008 Presidential bid

Well every campaign needs a little comic relief.  Does Dennis have a clown suit?

CLEVELAND (AP) — Fed up with what he says is his party’s failure to end the war in Iraq, Democratic U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich is entering the race for president — again.

It’s the second bid for the nation’s top office for Kucinich, a six-term, liberal congressman from Cleveland whose long-shot presidential candidacy in 2004 made headlines more for Kucinich’s bachelorhood than his policies. This time around Kucinich has a wife.

Kucinich, 60, scheduled a press conference Tuesday at City Hall to formally announce his 2008 campaign.

He said he was inspired to run because he disagrees with the way some of his fellow Democrats are handling the war, including approval of a proposal to spend $160 billion more on the conflict.
