|MY MAN KUCINICH

angryrobot taunts me by saying that Dennis Kucinich is "my man."|
According to http://www.presidentmatch.com/ the candidates that most closely match my views are, in order:
1. Kucinich 2. Sharpton 3. Gephardt 4. Kerry 5. Dean 6. Clark 7. Edwards 8. Lieberman
I'm caucusing for Edwards, so I guess crappy-ass AOL polls don't know shit. Or rather, one's stance on issues issues isn't and shouldn't be one's only consideration. I care a lot about electability, as do most Iowans. If Iowa Democrats were just voting their positions on issues, Kucinich would be one of the top candidates, and Sharpton might have a chance.
Unfortunately for them, they have high negatives. Kucinich looks like 'guy most likely to accessorize with tinfoil brain shield,' and Al Sharpton doesn't inspire trust*
*and no it's not a race thing. Iowans would probably vote in droves for the first black guy to come along who looked presidential. Al Sharpton is a storefront preacher from Harlem, which may give him some moral authority, but that doesn't prepare him for running a giant bureaucracy.
