Kucinich Drops Out of '08 Presidential Race

Frankly I'm very surprised by this news. I figured Rep. Kucinich would stick around all the way to the convention:

Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich is abandoning his second bid for the White House.
In an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the congressman said he was quitting the race and would made a formal announcement Friday.
"I want to continue to serve in Congress," he told the newspaper.
Kucinich said he will not endorse another Democrat in the primary.
Kucinich's honesty, integrity and advocacy for progressive values will be sorely missed on the campaign trail. Here's another example of Kucinich candor that I read this morning (emphasis mine):
