Democratic Matchmaking for Liberal Hearts
When Dennis Kucinich ran for President in 2008 he had a new bride that he picked out on his own to fill the position of "first lady". During the 2004 election, however, when he was single, our democratic match-making service helped set him up with a potential running mate. Here are the details:
