DEBATE: Dems on Electability, Iraq

When asked to describe the "decisive moment" in his life that ultimately had led him to enter politics, Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich told a moving story about growing up poor.

"I would say the decisive moment in my life was when my family was living in a car in the inner city and I thought about all the dreams that I could have as a child. And I decided, at an early age, that I was going to be someone," he said.

"And I've had a lot of help along the way to get to this stage, but I can tell you, as president, the American people will have someone who remembers where he came from and has the compassion in his heart to lift up everyone to make sure everyone has a chance."
