Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, a consistent opponent of the war in Iraq, appeared Sunday on ABC's This Week, telling host George Stephanopoulos, "I think that the support is building in my direction."
Stephanopoulos suggested instead that the response to Kucinich merely represents the Democratic Party's "liberal base" and that the "centrists" of the Democratic Leadership Council under Howard Ford believe that Kucinich's ideas "could hurt the party."
Stephanopoulos quoted Ford as saying, "'George W. Bush is handing us Democrats our Hoover moment'" and told Kucinich, "They believe that if the party follows your path, they're going to blow this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
"You have to keep in mind that the center has shifted in our politics," Kucinich responded, smiling. "I'm really at the center, and all the other candidates are to the right of me. And they're to the right of the American people."Raw Story
