Cook Report adds Kucinich to list of vulnerable Dems

I just got this email from Dennis Kucinich. Please chip in what you can to help a great independent-minded progressive: http://kucinich.us/contribute

Dear Friend,

The Cook Report has written that the seat I have held in congress for the last 14 years is no longer a safe Democratic seat.

I cannot take this election for granted.

We need immediate help to raise the funds to spend for last-minute media buys to make sure there is no question about the outcome.

Please send a contribution.

Thank you, as ever.

Dennis


Seven More Competitive House Races 

Dennis Kucinich among newly vulnerable Dems. 

3:48 PM, OCT 26, 2010 • BY MICHAEL WARREN • weeklystandard.com

The Cook Political Report has updated seven House races, moving all seven “Solid Democrat” races to “Likely Democrat.” The list includes Frank Pallone of New Jersey, David Price of North Carolina, Peter DeFazio of Oregon, Jim Cooper of Tennessee, Lloyd Doggett of Texas, John Tierney of Massachusetts, and Dennis Kucinich of Ohio … Kucinich’s challenger, Cleveland businessman Peter Corrigan, was considered a long shot until a recent internal poll showed Corrigan within single digits of the two-time presidential candidate.

This would be bad

I would hate to lose Kucinich in the House.

RE: This would be bad

Last of the FDR style liberal Democrats, true to his principles, and for that reason, somehow always looking as if he is some kind of radical. That's Dennis Kucinich.

In those days past, his kind of radical, when people cared about people, was the norm. It just goes to show how much Reagan influenced the Democratic party to look a little bit more like him, a class B actor and class B politician.

But...

FDR was not an "FDR style liberal Democrat" when he first got in, he transitioned to what we all know and love.  He was rather "conservative" (for his time) when he first ran for and took office.

RE: But...

All most of remember is the last FDR, not the first one.
