Kucinich turns pro-choice as he runs for President 

“U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich opened a long-shot bid for the White House yesterday by altering one of his long-standing positions, promising Iowa Democrats he would be “pro-choice” on the question of abortion.”

While I’m happy about his new view, I do question the timing. I rather admired him for holding a pro-life stance because it was obviously a deeply held view (or a deeply held view of his constituents). Now he’s tossed that out the window to run for President. Hmmm.

Update: Note the comments to this post. A reader reports Kucinich’s change may have been happening since at least October.
