Steve, Dennis Kucinich is seeking the presidency for the second time and is running low in the polls (Hammer, “A Real Visionary,” Nov. 28-Dec. 5). You described him as creepy looking but you forgot to mention his height: 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7, depending on the source. If he makes it to the White House, he will be the shortest president since William McKinley, the same height and elected in 1892, and would be the first vegan president. He said on one of the debates he saw a UFO and is friends with Shirley McClain, which I would say would be in his favor.
Voters tend to favor taller presidential candidates and apparently he favors tall women, since his new wife, Elizabeth, who is 31 years his junior and has a tongue stud, is a 6-foot redhead from Essex in southern England. Maybe he is on a roll.
