Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Democratic
candidate for president, adopted the vegan lifestyle as a result of his
friendship with Cleveland lawyer Yelena Boxer:
"I hold the distinction of being the only vegan in Congress. I made this lifestyle change many years ago, because I consider all life on our Earth to be sacred. As a vegan, I choose not to eat any animals or animal products. I strive to live my life in accordance with my convictions, and any other choice of diet would defy my ideals and, in my judgment, be hypocritical."
