He wants to impeach Dick Cheney and forced the House to vote on the resolution.
An American Research poll showed that 54 percent of Americans and 74 percent of Democrats support beginning impeachment proceedings for Dick Cheney.
The articles call on Cheney's persistent lies pertaining to Iraq, connecting the country to the Sept. 11 attacks and Al-Qaida, also claiming that Iraq was storing weapons of mass destruction.
If so many Americans support the beginning of impeachment procedures against Cheney, and so many Democrats, it's almost offensive that no other representatives have stood to join Kucinich.
That's why Kucinich pushing this resolution through the House is refreshing. He is concerned and upset about the administration's war cries, and he knows there are citizens who feel the same.
So he's doing what he should - instead of just quietly waiting for the '08 election.
In an interview last week with Democracy Now!, Kucinich said that we have no time to waste.
"'What are we waiting for?' is the question, not 'Why don't we wait for the election?'"
Kucinich isn't just worried about Iraq, he's also worried about Iran.
He knows the Bush administration is planning for another war, and says that the 14 months they have left in office is plenty of time to get the country into trouble.
His fellow Democrats have failed to do that so far. At first, they voted to kill the measure. That move was started by the Democratic Majority Leader. He knew that Republicans would want to see the measure debated and Democrats put on the spot to support Kucinich or not.
And the Republicans caught on. At first, they voted to kill the measure.
