I don't think many Americans are ready to entertain the thought of what real "peace" looks like. They are afraid of Kucinich. He's too liberal for many to embrace. Many do not think that being anti-war is the best thing for us. That's why so many approve of Bush and his handling of the war. Lots of democrats approve of Bush. They think that we have to slap people around in order for them to leave us alone.
I've heard so many democrats-particular african-american democrats for some reason-say that they support democrats on domestic issues but support republicans when it comes to foreign policy. They feel safer with a republican running things oversees.
