The Food Corner - 2008 Campaign Edition

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Democratic candidate for president, adopted the vegan lifestyle as a result of his friendship with Cleveland lawyer Yelena Boxer:

"I hold the distinction of being the only vegan in Congress.  I made this lifestyle change many years ago, because I consider all life on our Earth to be sacred.  As a vegan, I choose not to eat any animals or animal products.  I strive to live my life in accordance with my convictions, and any other choice of diet would defy my ideals and, in my judgment, be hypocritical."
