Me, Dennis, and background goof Jonathan Shapiro.
I was lucky enough to meet Congressman and Democratic Presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich in Washington D.C. over the July 4th weekend. The Congressman and I had a brief chat about his veganism (and his frustration at always being labeled vegan first and politician second): apparently it allows him to stay clearer and “more focused” than he’s been in twenty years–he’s able to work 18 hour days and snag hot young ladies. And he swears by hummus. Perhaps a bad batch was what struck him down with food poisoning this week. Hopefully he’ll recover quickly to hit the trail and do a little shoe pleather campaigning.
I know political progressives are torn over support for Kucinich–he’s part of the two-party system, yet he’s more progressive than Nader–and, oh yeah, he doesn’t have a chance in hell. But a girl can dream.
