That's why I chose to support Kucinich instead of Dean.  Given his track
record, Kucinich seems more likely to stick by his promises.

Unfortunately, he also seems to stand about a snowball's chance in hell of
actually getting the Democratic nomination -- but he's also made it clear
in recent weeks that part of his goal is to get some leverage for his
ideas, should it come down to a brokered nomination at the convention
(which is looking more and more likely.)
