This fool thinks Kucinich is/was a valid candidate.

Click on this PBS interactive Electoral Collage Map and look at the maps for 1980, 1984 and 1988 once.
Now after looking at those realize that all happened only about 30 years ago or less. Most of the voters who did that haven't went anywhere. They are still out there voting. And for that reason alone Democrats are not going to win a presidential election by trying to appeal to only left wing liberals like myself with those voters still out there. Can't be done. We don't have the votes to do it. Look at the maps again if you don't believe me.
The most liberal, and my preferred candidate in the last Democratic primary Dennis Kucinich couldn't even win one state. Does that tell you anything? Tells me dyed in the wool liberals like myself are few and far between. There aren't enough of us to make a difference yet. Maybe some day that will change? But not yet.
People like Don scare me.May the FORCE be with you!

I thought the reason an ultra-liberal democrat couldn't be elected is because they are insane.
