Mike Gravel might not have a hope in hell,

but I'll give him credit for being more gutsy, more real, than just about anyone else in this election cycle's candidates for the Democrat presidential nomination.

As an independent, I consider Gravel, and to a somewhat lesser degree Kucinich and Paul are the only ones that either the Dems or the GOP have offered up that are even worth the time of day, and Paul has some baggage that makes it highly unlikely that I'd ever endorse him.

That said, it's a shame that what passes for "leadership" in those two parties seem so afraid of these candidates. Personally, I think we should all be wary of any of the candidates who would continue colonizing Iraq, and who threaten to start a war against Iran.
