Matthews: Recap of presidential candidates at AFSCME forum

Congressman Dennis Kucinich:  

“We need a president who can defend our country, but also who knows when war is wrong and is ready to say so when it counts, not four years later, not five years later, who doesn’t say, ‘Look, I’m against war but I’d vote to fund the war,’ but stands for peace.”

“It’s predicated on the Congress telling the president no more funds for the war. At that point, President Bush must go to the international community to put together a peacekeeping and security force, which won’t be done until we end the occupation and indicate an intention to end the occupation and close the bases, an international force which moves in as our troops leave because our troops have to leave.”
