George Bush has announced that he will give a major national speech on Wednesday, in which he will respond to John Kerry's criticisms of the president. This appears to be the first time any president has tried to hold a major televised speech during the election season for such a purpose. During his term in office, Mr. Bush has given the fewest press conferences of any president
in the televised era. John Kerry had previously offered Bush weekly debates
... and George Bush refused. Is it fair to say that he'd rather use his power of office to dictate to us instead?
Candidate Kucinich gets a blog.
Dennis Kucinich has jumped into the weblog arena
, making his own posts and accepting comments. He even has an RSS feed
. Kucinich's campaign is drawing the largest crowds
of any candidate and is expected to perform well in the MoveOn Primary
. Kucinich faces tough opposition from Dean, but his support for military budget cuts and tougher accounting practices set him apart from the other candidates. Studs Terkel says "Kucinich Is the One"
, and Ralph Nader not only encouraged Kucinich to run, but invited him to speak on the Democracy Rising tour
. Will Nader endorse the Kucinich campaign? Can Dennis move the Democratic Party to the left and bring the Greens back into the fold?
