Kucinich supports instant runoff, is opposed to the death penalty, would pull out from NAFTA and the WTO, supports gay and transgendered rights.

Wow!

Yes, but have you seen his stance on abortion? He used to be opposed, but now he is tolerant. He won't take away a woman's right to choose, but is not okay with it. It seems a bit sketchy to me

Did any of the other candidates have a better stance on abortion?

Well, many democrats put on the pro-choice face and don't have shady backgrounds on the issue. I have to say, Kucinech is looking like the best option, but I think getting out of democratic candidates is just a good idea all together.

But have you read his explanation on his web site why he changed his views? It seems fairly legitimate. His stand at this point actually makes sense to me.

Kucinich is my favorite candidate running so far. I've been a fan since I learned about him a few months ago. I'm concerned he's not actually going to get enough of a support base to be viable..and so I feel like that leaves me choosing between Kerry, Gephardt, and Clark. At the moment Kerry seems like a better choice than the others. A Clark vs. Bush debate about military issues would be fascinating though.

I doubt Kucinich would be "electable" either (other than in san fransisco) but I do want him to last as long as possible to keep raising a highly progressive platform. (or was it green, it's hard to tell).

OOC, what do you think of Kerry, Gephardt, and Clark?

From what I've gathered so far Clark is a military man who doesn't understand politics. Clark has a history of angry outbursts, reacting rather than acting, and other than military issues has no Presidential experience.

Gephardt seems okay. He has a lesbian daughter and is somewhat open to lgbt issues. Gephardt does support NAFTA/FTAA/other trade agreements. That's a downfall for me. Gephardt did hold an important office in Congress and has the political connections that would allow him to operate more effectively than Clark.

Kerry does not support NAFTA/FTAA/other trade agreements. One of the things that sticks out about him for me is that he wants to restore civil liberties and end the Ashcroft Era as he calls it. That speaks large volumes to me. Having served in the military he has some knowledge of how that works plus political experience. Kerry is in support of equal rights, including ENDA and other lgbt issues. He is endorsed by the HRC for whatever that is worth.
