Noticed the link that took me to Amazon books.

Will we ever have a vegan President?

Dennis Kucinich is a vegan. He was ridiculed and declared "unelectable" because he is too short and once reported seeing a UFO (not a "flying saucer"!). Sadly, a vegan, pro-union, pro-environment, anti-war person will not likely ever be seriously considered by the establishment as a Presidential candidate...

    Never say never! I think it's just a matter of time.

    New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is vegan! He is extremely popular, charismatic and well liked. I think he'd be an awesome president. Maybe our first vegan president will be Cory Booker! http://articles.philly.com/2014-12-12/news/56959950_1_vegan-cory-booker-vegetarian

    Wasn't that long ago that a black president would have been unthinkable.

    Vegetarian and vegan numbers are constantly rising so I would concur that it's just a matter of time.

    happycowgirl-

    Booker appeared last nigh on the first episode of "The Nightly Show" that just replaced "The Colbert Report" at 11:30 (EST) on Comedy Central.

    He said he had no interest in becoming President, but he said it with a wry smile! Who knows?

    I'm totally hooked on The Nightly Show now. I love when he throws the "weak tea" bags at ppl. LOL!

    I hope Colbert keeps it real when he takes over for David Letterman. If he just does a regular talk show interviewing celebrities it'll seem like such a waste of a gifted progressive mind. IMHO.

    We lost Colbert and we're losing John Stewart, - at least their successful shows.

    The worst news this week was the cancellation of "Breaking the Set" on Rt. Abby Martin was almost uniquely courageous in her outspoken criticism of the ruling class during her three years as host of BTS. She was not afraid to tackle any issue including the suffering of non-human animals in factory farming, research labs, etc. She will be sorely missed, though her past shows can still be seen on Youtube and her Facebook page.
