Determined to get the Kucinich vote

Is the vote of Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich (pictured) worth an Air Force One visit to Ohio? You bet!

A report at the link below is titled, “Kucinich in Obama's crosshairs.”

Air Force One took off from suburban Maryland today at 11:13 a.m. and landed 48 minutes later in Cleveland.

For Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) -- who says he plans to vote no on the president's health-care bill -- it must have felt like a much longer flight.

Obama invited Kucinich and undecided Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) to the ultimate pressure cooker as he tries to nail down a majority for his top domestic priority.

Obama had a pre-arranged rally of pro-Obama supporters in Strongsville, Kucinich’s suburban Cleveland district.

When Obama introduced Kucinich at the Strongsville rally, someone in the audience (an Obama plant?) called out, "Vote yes."

Obama, right on que, turned to Kucinich and asked, "Did you hear that, Dennis?”

Will it take more strong-arming? Will it take a bribe? One way or another Obama is determined to get the Kucinich vote and any others he needs to pass ObamaCare!



Kucinich caves in on ObamaCare and will vote yes as reported here.
