WASHINGTON (CNN) - The first major applause of Monday's CNN/Youtube debate went to Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio.
In response to a YouTube question asking, " What do you have that they do not have?", the congressman described his vision for a more peaceful America.
"I say we achieve strength through peace. That's the new doctrine that I'm going to promote through this campaign."
Citing his family's military background and his long-held opposition to the Iraq war, Kucinich outlined a shift in American foreign policy that he would advocate: "an approach which says that you can use international agreements and treaties, that you can work to set your difference without committing the young men and woman to war unless it's absolutely necessary."
