COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Congressman Dennis Kucinich has officially announced he will pick Alfred E. Neuman of New York to be his running mate for VP should he win the Democratic Party nomination for President.
"I think Neuman's name will help me in my efforts to become the next President of the United States," said Kucinich. "He'll lend credibility to the ticket."
Neuman, 51, is a model and a spokesperson for Mad magazine, a well-known, long-running satirical magazine owned by Warner Communications.
In a telephone conversation, Neuman stated he was honored the Ohio Congressman chose him for the job. "I'm really pleased Dennis picked me over Bugs Bunny and Donald Duck," he said.
