Ahmadinejad, Ron Paul & Dennis Kucinich

Yesterday the members of US House of representatives issued condemnations and voted overwhelmingly to officially denounce Irianian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and tighten snactions against him and his government. Holocaust Survivor Congressman Tom Lantos (D-CA) led charge which passed 397-16.
Incidentally, two votes against were Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.
I've noticed that for several votes taken recently in the house on measures concerning the Middle East, each has passed with very wide margins though two (and sometimes the only 2) dissenting votes were both cast by by 2008 presidential candiates Democrat Dennis Kucinich and Republican Ron Paul.
