Joe Candidate: The New Series from DNC-TV

It looks like Dennis Kucinich is going to get lucky. is reporting that a 33-year-old stalwart Democrat beat out 79 other hopefuls to land a date with the long-shot Presidential candidate:

After weeks of suspense, Don Juan presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich snagged a date yesterday with Gina Marie Santore, a 33-year-old Democratic party loyalist who currently works for the sheriff of Camden County, N.J. Santore used Internet politicking skills to defeat 79 others who tried to win a date with Kucinich through the Web site. She said she was drawn to Kucinich's "attractive platform," more than anything else.

His "attractive platform"? Well, I've seen his picture, so I'd have to think it was his platform she found attractive, although Lord knows, this bald 40-year-old doesn't have much room to talk. The article details that the two are considering Indian food when they get together.

Power Line
gets a shot in by reminding us that Bill Clinton used his office to meet chicks, but hey, at least Kucinich isn't married. I just wasn't aware that one of the major duties of campaign workers was to arrange blind dates for their candidates. You would think that they would have more important matters on their minds at the moment, but then, no one else is taking Kucinich seriously, either.

UPDATE: Yale Diva has a humorous take on this as well, and has the same skepticism about finding someone's "platform" attractive. Sounds like what your mom would say when she sets you up with someone.
