Dennis John Kucinich (born October 8, 1946) is a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives and was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2004 and 2008 elections.

Kucinich currently represents the 10th District of Ohio in the House of Representatives, which he has been serving since 1996. His district includes most of western Cleveland as well as suburbs such as Parma and Lakewood. He is currently the chairman of the Domestic Policy Subcommittee of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He is also a member of the Education and Labor Committee.

From 1977 to 1979, Kucinich served as the 53rd mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, a tumultuous term in which he survived a recall election and was successful in a battle against selling the municipal electric utility before being defeated for reelection by George Voinovich.

Through his various governmental positions and campaigns, Kucinich has attracted attention for consistently delivering "the strongest liberal" perspective. This perspective and his actions, such as bringing articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, and being the only Democratic candidate in the 2008 election to vote against invading Iraq, has often been in sharp contrast to the moderate to conservative tone the Democratic Party has often adopted.

John L. Mica (born January 27, 1943), American politician, has been a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives since 1993, representing Florida's 7th congressional district. He is the brother of former Representative Daniel A. Mica, while his other brother, David is a former ranking staffer with Senator Lawton Chiles.

Erik Dean Prince (born June 6, 1969) is the American founder and sole owner of the private military company Xe, formerly Blackwater Worldwide. Testifying before the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on October 2, 2007, he gave his title as chairman and CEO of the Prince Group and Blackwater Worldwide, then named Blackwater USA. On March 2, 2009, Prince announced that he was stepping down as CEO of Xe.

Israeli Bad Behavior?

When do good intentions go bad? Protecting one's national interests is considered good. When there are no real checks and balances, and anything goes, there is no stop to the downward spiral until there is an intervention.
