As far as I know, Dennis Kucinich is the only vegan in Congress right now. Because of redistricting, he had to face off against a fellow Democrat in a primary, and he lost. So she'll run against the Republican challenger in November, and he'll be out of a job when the next Congressional session begins in January 2013.

I agree. The points Josh mentions need the entire context to truly understand his intentions.

That's what disturbing about Dennis' behavior. Kaptur really did lead a vile campaign, but he needs to have her back. She's still not half as bad as Joe

I think the only way Kaptur can lose to Joe the Plumber, is if Kucinich runs as an Independent against her and the inexperienced one.
