Watch this Youtube campaign clip from Dennis Kucinich, a Democratic presidential hopeful vying for his party's nomination.
You don't have to watch the whole thing; just the first few seconds will do.
What is the deal with the young woman standing behind him? She is just standing there with her presence taking up almost half the screen making him look two-headed, but yet Kucinich does nothing in the way of introducing the woman. Then the camera zooms out revealing the rest of the crowd flanking him adorned with campaign signs, and the clip ends.
Who exactly is taking centerstage here? If she is the candidate's daughter whom he is showcasing as most politicians do with their children in order to portray themselves as a family man, then the camera work leaves much to be desired. And also, the guy can certainly use John Edwards' $400 haircut.
What is up with the woman's prominence in the clip with no explanation whatsoever? I kept asking, is this guy an aspiring beauty pageant MC or a presidential candidate? When I pointed this to my political junkie friend, he told me that the young woman is his WIFE.
Dennis Kucinich is 60, and the woman 29. Yikes!
My goodness. At age 41, I have come to terms with the realization that women in their 20's are now way out of my age range, and here comes a guy who is old enough to be my father marrying a young woman I consider too young for me.
Maybe I shouldn't summarily write off Britney any more.
Thank you for reading the most pointless posting ever to grace the blogosphere
