On Sunday evening, I happened to be riding on the same plane from Chicago to Cleveland with Dennis Kucinich, who is running for President. I didnt actually have the opportunity to talk with him, so I can offer no first hand insight, but a recent newspaper article provides this window into Kucinichs beliefs:
At a peace conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia, last year, Kucinich was more specific about his beliefs. He spoke about how the Eagle Nebula, a star-forming region that is 7,000 light years from Earth, reminds him of the relationship between stardust and the human spirit.
"The energy of the stars becomes us. We become the energy of the stars. Stardust and spirit unite and we begin: One with the universe," Kucinich said.
Suddenly, his stance in favor of legalized medical marijuana makes perfect sense.
