Kucinich Drops Out of Democratic Race

Dennis Kucinich, the Democratic equivalent of Ron Paul, in that he was given little or no chance by the media, has abandoned his hope of securing the Democratic nomination for the Presidential election. He said he was quitting the race and would make a formal announcement tomorrow, Friday. "I will be announcing that I'm transiting out of the presidential campaign," Kucinich said. "I'm making that announcement tomorrow about a new direction." We'll have to wait and see (or hear, more actually) what he intends doing. Apparently, he won't be endorsing another candidate, though.

Some are reflecting that his supporters may gravitate to Ron Paul, even though that means switching party in the primaries (in some cases they may not be able to). The race is still open.

I hope his "transiting out" was not too painful. William Shatner did a lot of that once!
