Kucinich's loss is America's loss.

"NEW YORK - The legacy of Dennis Kucinich's longshot presidential campaign may be less his anti-war views than a futile fight that legally reinforced the rights of TV networks to organize their own debates."

ABC, CNN and MSNBC were able to exclude him from debates that they had invited him to. It should comfort no one that the media not only controls what we hear and see but who we can now vote for.

"We want to give voters a chance to make an informed judgment about the people who would be their president," said Sam Feist, CNN's political director. "By having people in a debate that don't have a reasonable chance at the nomination, that takes away from the voters' ability to hear from the people who do have a reasonable chance."

Here is a protip, Mr. Feist, the American people do not care who you see as 'having a reasonable chance', the American people do not pay you to make that decision, in fact they don't pay you at all
