Kucinich Blasts Targeted Killings, Says Defeat "Has Never Had Power Over Me"


Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich has blasted targeted killings by the U.S. as a chilling "assault on the Constitution." Having just lost a brutal primary battle, he says he's not sure what he'll do next but is feeling peaceful and open to "whatever possibilities are out there.” More on what one admirer calls "the conscience of the Congress."

“I’m no stranger to defeat. But defeat has never had power over me. It’s never changed me. Nor has victory. So I’m at peace with where things are."
