More bad news for Dennis Kucinich …

Yesterday he placed second-to-last in Iowa, winning the support of only 1 delegate. Only Gravel did worse with 0 delegates.

The two candidates ahead of him, Joe Biden (8 delegates) and Chris Dodd (19 delegates), have already dropped out of the race.

But Dennis still doesn’t seem to get the message.

Maybe this will help: a few minutes ago the AP reported that ABC News is is dropping Kucinich and Gravel from Saturday’s debate in New Hampshire.

Clowntime is over, Congressman. It’s time to pack it in and come on home.

Biden being Biden

On July 10, 2007 By

Jerid posted a nice blurb yesterday afternoon (what? My paying job has been monopolizing my time lately!) about Joe Biden campaigning in New Hampshire.

As we started the Senator offered me a cookie. Yea, you read that right. He offered a cookie. Like I said, he’s a funny guy. Quick on the draw, and with a sense of fashion (check out that seer sucker suit in the photos). That’s all any of us really need out of a candidate right, fashion and humor?

Biden has a remarkable ability to relate to people. He’s charming, personable, quick-witted, and able to […]

A rather curious poll came to light yesterday; amongst the current field of Democratic presidential candidates, Clinton has a large lead with 37% to Obama’s 19%, with no one else north of 10%.

However, if you throw Al Gore’s name into the mix, the situation shifts dramatically.

Al Gore, however, could enter the race as the leader. When his name is added, Clinton loses more than a quarter of her support, while Gore is backed by 32 percent.

As much as it hurts Clinton if Gore enters the race, it appears it must hurt the other candidates even more […]

As a part of The New Hampshire Project, BSB chief (and PB alum) Jerid sat down for a fifteen minute interview with Democratic Presidential candidate Senator Chris Dodd.

It’s an excellent interview by Jerid. Having participated in a Meet The Bloggers event before, I know both how powerful these opportunities can be, and how difficult it can be to interview candidates as a normal citizen.

These kinds of events are tremendously important. So listen, learn, and comment. If candidates notice, they’ll be more likely to participate in the future, and really, the blogosphere is perhaps the most democratic form […]

He’s not my favorite candidate by any means, but he is smart enough to know a prezzie is gonna need the blogs in ’08 – and gonna need Ohio blog love – so the good Senator is sitting down with Jerid at BSB during his New Hampshire Project in what I’m hearing is a no pre-determined rules conversation. The most amazing thing is that they called him up, obviously riffing off of the Obama misstep of kicking Jerid out of a public event. I haven’t commented on that yet, but suffice to say I think the Obama […]

It’s no wonder the wingnut blogosphere attacks Jerid and BSB. They don’t come up with killer ideas like this. They are unimaginative. Dare say even if they did, they wouldn’t follow through with it and make it the success that Jerid is obviously on his way to doing.

The only thing they seem capable of is carpetbombing sycophantic right-wing talking points and talking about how “influential” they are. Hah. Let’s measure influence on results. You got Mary Taylor elected. Congrats. (but I digress)
