In an earlier post, MB left this comment:
It’s a conversation for another time, but I’m struck by how well Kucinich matches up for many of us, but we never treated him as a serious candidate. I think there’s plenty of good reasons for that particular result, but it really bothers me when, in primary season (and the run up to it) we spend so much more time on electability and whatnot instead of substantive policies.
MB is right. Why have so many of us not taken Kucinich seriously, when his views match up so well with our own? Are we only looking at electability or are there other reasons for dismissing the candidacy of him?
