Clarity = Kucinich

In the wake of the Massachusetts debacle, Rep. Dennis Kucinich slammed
Democrats for betraying their principles and caving to special
interests, which are "more entrenched than ever." He said "there's
nothing liberal" about what they've done on bank bailouts, health
reform, the environment and pretty much anything else that matters. 

"Every
area of the economy is still about taking wealth from the great mass of
people and putting it into the hands of a few...You
ask the banks to reform banking? Put in the insurance companies
to reform insurance? Call in nuclear to reform energy policies? Are you
kidding me?"
