Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) told CNSNews.com he would have a different foreign policy if he had been selected as the Democratic presidential candidate.
Denver (CNSNews.com) – Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama and his running mate Sen. Joe Biden are wrong to call for sending more U.S. troops to Afghanistan to fight the war on terror.
 
Kucinich, who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004 and 2008 and also launched an effort to impeach President George W. Bush, told CNSNews.com that the next president should support a foreign policy that would pull troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan and avoid any military confrontation with Iran.
 
Kucinich, who signed a letter of solidarity with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela in 2004, told CNSNews.com that he would have a different foreign policy if he had been selected as the Democratic presidential candidate or the vice presidential candidate.
 
“You know, they won,” Kucinich said. “(Biden) is the vice presidential candidate. That’s his opinion, I have a different opinion. But you know what, God Bless him and God Bless America.”
