Supporters plan to vote Kucinich
Patrick West, a Boulder resident and coordinator of the Kucinich campaign in Colorado, said even though Kucinich released his delegates and asked them to vote for Kerry, "every single one of them said, 'No, we're still going to vote for Dennis Kucinich.'"
They are the children of the lost cause
Kim Cohen, a Boulder County delegate to the convention, said it's important to support Kucinich -- even though he's withdrawn from the race -- because the Democrats have drawn support and new members from the Green Party and others this year partly because of candidates like Kucinich. Though Kerry will get the nomination, the vote for Kucinich will tell those newer Democrats they're being taken seriously, Cohen said.
"If we marched in lockstep we'd be Republicans. This is the party of diversity. This is the party of multiple voices."
