An ACORN forum wrap up and a clip of Kucinich

I spent the bulk of the day sitting on a hard wooden pew at the Bright Hope Baptist Church, listening to politicians sell their messages. I was impressed by the friendliness that existed between Michael Nutter and Chaka Fattah, since they only just recently were adversaries. I was taken with what a good, concise speaker Sen. Hillary Clinton is. I experienced a moment when I could actually conceive of her as President. My first impression of Rep. Dennis Kucinich was that he bore a striking resemblance to Mr. Rogers, but I was quickly disavowed of that impression once he started talking. I was charmed by Sen. John Edwards’ honesty and his ability to say that eliminating poverty is “the cause of his life.”

I’m including an almost-two minute long clip of Rep. Kucinich speaking. It starts out mild and then becomes increasingly impassioned, to the point where he had the entire audience on their feet, cheering with the excitement they felt as he shared his vision.
