To John Nichols: Your most recent column is on the mark. I agree 100 percent. But I wonder why there is so little thought given to the politics of Dennis Kucinich? I have been incredibly disappointed that Kucinich has nor been invited to be a more public participant in the Obama administration. I wonder what our mutual friend the late Clarence Kailin would think about how this Congressman appears to be on the outside of the Obama plans for the future. What are your thoughts?
