Gunning for a presidential nomination back in 2004,  it turns out Ohio Rep ?Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) had a problem on his hands.  No, not a mistress or misappropriation of funds.  It was his diet.  He was a vegan! According to the Businessweek article, “The Rise of Power Vegans,” many worried that the rep’s choice to forgo meat and other animal products would confuse voters, “People weren’t sure if it was another political party or an ethnic group they’d never heard of,” Kucinich shared.

It turns out his choice to go vegan was sparked by love.  He made the change to capture the attention of a lady friend 15 years ago and never looked back.   In fact the longtime politician has penned a diet book under the working title, “The Cleveland Diet.”

The Businessweek writeup spotlights the growing trend of vegan CEOs and the use diet and lifestyle to influence power.  Notable vegan mentions were Ford Executive Chairman of the Board Bill Ford, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, venture capitalist Joi Ito, Whole Foods Market  Chief Executive Officer John Mackey, and Mike Tyson.
