ABC has called the race in Ohio District 10 for the U.S House of Representatives for Dennis Kucinich, the long-time Cleveland political figure and general political gadfly.
It is hard to believe that Kucinich is still in politics — he was the “Boy Mayor” of Cleveland when I worked for the Wall Street Journal Cleveland bureau in 1979. Kucinich will no doubt make Congress a more interesting place, but he is more of a bomb-thrower than an effective legislator.
Speaking of gadflies, ABC News also has declared that James Traficant has failed in his attempt to return to his congressional seat. With that loss, we’ll have to figure out now which Representative will win the coveted title of weirdest hairdo.
