Edwards, Clinton vs. Dennis the Menace

This post, written by Taylor Marsh, originally appeared on Taylor Marsh.com

When egos collide. The frontrunners want more time to explain their policies without being interrupted by the two and three percent political pipsqueaks; while the wannabes want to absord some of that white hot light the frontrunners exude. What to do?

I don't know about you, and even appreciating that he actually advertised on this blog and placed in the MoveOn.org Iraq town hall, I have to say that I'm now official sick of Dennis Kucinich. His "peace" department was bad enough; because he evidently hasn't heard about the state department. But is he running for president or the Hollywood version of it?
"Imperial candidates are as repugnant to the American people and to our Democracy as an imperial President." -Dennis Kucinich
Dennis has turned into quite the little grand stander.
"This is a serious matter and I'm calling him on it," Kucinich, an Ohio congressman, said in a telephone interview today. "Whispering, trying to rig an election, then denying what's going on and making excuses. It all reflects a consistent lack of integrity."
"Rig an election"?

Ho-boy. Hyperbole alert.

Mr. Kucinich should be thanking Edwards and Clinton. He hasn't gotten this much media attention since, well, ever.

And excuse me for sounding "imperial," but I'd like to hear more from people who have deep substantive policy issues to offer and who could actually win the general election. We've seen the candidates in action many times already and if you can't gain traction in the polls, well, it's not because you haven't had the opportunity.
