"He's still as cool as he ever was," DiFranco told Spinner of Kucinich, a personal friend, when she stopped by the Interface in October. "I can't tell you how many times I hear, over and over, 'Well, he was the coolest. I watched the debate and he made the most sense but he's unelectable.' Again, that disillusionment. People just don't even believe anymore that you can vote for a guy and he can be president. It's all about the money and the power. You have to believe something before you can make it so. I hate to see us progressives in this country shooting ourselves in the foot, just accepting the media celebrity game that they play with the supposedly electable people."
Rep. Kucinich will announce his proposal to launch the Works Green Administration -- a organization aimed at launching various "green strategies" for alternative fuels development, energy conservation, research and technology -- at the event, as well as address the climate change crisis and opposing the construction of new nuclear power reactors (all issues DiFranco is dedicating her November tour to). Partial proceeds from the jaunt -- launched in support of her latest releast, the two-disc career-retrospective 'Canon' -- will benefit the non-profit organization Nuclear Information Resource Service.
