Who wants to be a First Lady?

…or more likely, the wife of an also-ran. The website politicsNH.com is having a “Mrs. Kucinich Contest.” (Not to nitpick, but if he’s so progressive wouldn’t it be “Ms.”?) It’s pretty funny that they show the profile of the would-be contestants, and it includes their home state – and the number of electoral votes it carries.

“As a bachelor, I get a chance to fantasize about my first lady. And you know maybe Fox will want to sponsor it as a national contest or something. But in any event I would want definitely want someone who would not just be there by my side, but be a working partner because I think we’re in a day in age when partnerships are imperative to making anything happening in the world. And I certainly want a dynamic, out-spoken woman who was fearless in her desire for peace in the world and for universal single-payer health care and a full employment economy. If you are out there call me.”

– Democratic Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, 11/05/03
