    I just heard about this from a Republican friend of mine. He's gathering donations from Republicans and donating to the Kucinich campaign for President in hopes that Kucinich will get nominated. He's afraid Dean will get the nomination and will win the Presidency so he wants Kucinich nominated instead.

    I would say this is a waste of money. However, with Nader bowing out of the race, Kucinich is a shoo-in for the Green nomination if he wants it. So from that point, it makes sense, in a the-enemy-of-your-enemy-is-your-friend kind of way.

    Whos "he"?

    Thats good for Kucinich though. He can get just about everyones vote, those who understand his ideas. Also hes proven he can win elections against republicans, thats why I think he would do better against Bush than Dean.

    Republicans also donated to Dean's campaign, hoping he'd take
    the nomination from Kerry, Edwards and company. Maybe
    it's a good strategy, maybe not. Only time will tell.
