Sharpton's Convention

Ahead of his big convention later this month, Al Sharpton is offering little more than clues about which presidential candidate he’s going to support.

“On the war, Kucinich is probably the closest, because I feel we should defund the war,” he told me in an interview for this week’s paper. “On some issues of poverty, Edwards is closer. Health care–Hillary. In terms of racial profiling, probably Obama. All of them have been close in some area.”
