Kucinich folks, is it time to drop the avatar?
What do you think? Is it back to wacky, fun avatars? Do we keep flying our ideological colors even though the cause (such as it ever was) is lost? Should we be looking for another candidate whose avatar we can wear?

What say you?

1. Tough call, but I have to go with Lee Mercer

2. He is quite compelling
I wonder if there's a way to hear him speak? I imagine he has his own form of eloquence. His picture looks like he is on the verge of saying something profound.

I used to have Cthulhu. Maybe SwampRat will morph Cthulhu and Lee Mercer into the perfect candidate. What I really want is Oat Willie from the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. "Hitch yer wagon to a chicken!"

3. Never used that avatar
as I don't recall how to put up an avatar and it was hard enough getting the Heart and Wings I do use.

However, as Dennis is running for Congress and still needs our support to further his cause (and keep him in the House), I could see why some would keep the avatar.

4. I'll likely switch from Kucinich to others ones for fun
but every once in a while I'll bring back out a DK avatar

5. I would be sad to see the DK avatars completely
disappear, but I think sniffa has the best alternative.

10. I've just changed mine from "Kucinich 2008" to a Kucinich pic.
Considering that there are still whole, uncut (healthy) pumpkins on the stairway from Halloween, this may say a lot regarding my priorities ;)

11. Maybe it's time to step away from the "Idiot Box 2.0"
and bake some pies!

13. I didn't put my avatar on until he dropped out.
I didn't put a candidate avatar up because I wanted to engage in political gang warfare...er...campaigning. I put it up as a message that I'm not settling for less than what DK offers on the issues.

A way of honoring, and expressing continued support, for the work he has done and is doing for us in Congress.
