GOP presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, was recently asked about the prospect of a bipartisan Dennis Kucinich-Ron Paul ticket in 2008. Ohio congressman Kucinich is running for the Democratic nomination.
“Dennis is saying things that I say,” Paul said in a C-SPAN interview. “He and I would come very close on much of our foreign policy because he’s the strongest Democrat for bringing the troops home, and he’s been consistent.”
Kucinich’s team agrees that while two disagree on fiscal policy, they have many things in common when it comes to their goals for the country.
“Ron Paul’s a great truth teller as well. He’s voted 100 percent right on the war. I think that there could be some bipartisan movements going on there,” Kucinich’s wife Elizabeth said.
Other than pondering bipartisan alliances, the congressman is spending the rapidly dwindling primary campaign stretch in the early-decision state of New Hampshire, which will hold its nominating election on Jan. 8.
He’s been appearing at town hall meetings and book signings across the state and stopped in Hanover Monday to participate in an “impeachment teach-in” at Dartmouth College to talk to students about the Congressional process behind his efforts to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney.
