Profile in Courage (2010 edition)

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (from, I guess, back when he was a pawn of the insurance industry):

"The new proposal starts with a wholly unacceptable Senate health care bill and, with a few exceptions, continues to make it worse.” Kucinich: Obama Plan Makes 'Unacceptable' Senate Bill 'Worse'

But the President, as is his wont, appealed to the Ohioan's better side:

“Too many people are “talking about what this means for November,” Obama said, adding, “We need courage.”

So, all caution to the wind, Dennis Kucinich courageously flew in Air Force One with the President:

“What was said at 35,000 feet is anyone's guess, and Kucinich is -- for once -- not talking. The president talked one on one with Kucinich aboard Air Force One on the flight, a White House spokesman said.” 44 - Kucinich in Obama's crosshairs

Now:

Kucinich backs healthcare bill

..now he has to explain this to a constituency that went 59% for the President (slightly better than his 57%).

Comments:
I guess this is the new mile high club. Go up in a plane and screw your constituents.

Sorry for being crude.
