The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that
Dennis Kucinich would consider Ron Paul as his VP running mate. Meanwhile, Kucinich's wife states that Kucinich might accept running as VP under Paul.
I am opposed to Kucinich's domestic policies. My dream ticket is Paul/Kwiatkowski.
However, should Paul run as an independent, a Paul/Kucinich ticket is something that Libertarians should seriously consider. Paul will likely never win the presidency with just Republican support; not enough Republicans support him.
Additionally, Paul's support spans the spectrum. And he'll need to tap into this wide spectrum of support -- from left, right, and center -- to win on an independent ticket.
Yet despite admiring Paul, many of Paul's leftist supporters worry about Paul's libertarian economics. A Kucinich VP could cement Paul's support among the left, convincing them that Paul isn't that "scary."
As someone who's never voted Democratic in his life, I can vote for a Kucinich VP if that's the price of getting Paul into the White House. I've held my nose for worse tickets in the past.
