    Even though in 2008 he proposed impeachment articles against President George W. Bush over the Iraq War.

    Yea his fellow Democrats are ripping him a new one. I knew he would cave to the pressure eventually. But at least he did stand up. Gotta give him much Kudos for that.

    "Liberal Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) indicated Monday night that he is willing to serve as the deciding vote against healthcare reform legislation.

    The former presidential candidate voted against the House's healthcare bill in November because it lacked a "robust" public health insurance option. He called it a giveaway for the insurance industry.

    To proceed on healthcare, the House will likely have to pass the Senate's bill, which does not include a public option at all, along with a package of fixes to the bill proposed by President Barack Obama.


    "I told the president twice in two different meetings that I couldn't support the bill if it didn't have a robust public option" or significant consumer protections, he said on MSNBC."

    And then....

    "Maverick liberal Rep. Dennis Kucinich announced Wednesday he will vote in favor of healthcare reform, handing Democrats a crucial vote. "

    So, Dennis maintained his street cred, then did just what Democrats always do: fall in line.

    What have we learned?
    You can place any modifier in front of "Democrat," and the modifier remains silent.

    I give him kudos, but I didn't think he would cave. They must've threatened him with something big to get him to drop it.
