If elected Dennis Kucinich would apparently be the first vegan president. His veganism has been mentioned in various articles, and discussed in the vegan community. The biography on Kucinich's campaign website states, "He not only believes in sustainability, he practices it. Congressman Kucinich is one of the few vegans in Congress, a dietary decision he credits not only with improving his health, but in deepening his belief in the sacredness of all species."
