Just a thought....Ted Strickland for Secretary of Labor.....

Ted Strickland declined to run for Governor of Ohio in 2014...which leads me to speculate he may indeed be on the Presidents list. Ted is a friend to Labor....and a close friend to President Obama.

Anyone else have thoughts on this option?

4. I do not have limited insight

I imagine I read as much or more than you do...three newspapers a day and more than a book a week, not light reading my last was Meacham's book on Jefferson.

I am tired tired of not looking for women to fill these positions.... Sorry don't mean to insult you even though you did a good job of insulting me....

Tolerance would be nice....

10. There are qualified women if they look for them....

12. Ted Strickland would make a good appointee, regardless of gender.

Though up in years, Strickland is sharp, and his knowledge and experience should be used in some way by the administration.

I personally believe his age would be detrimental in a run for major office against a likely younger opponent, but he is energetic and has much to contribute.

14. He already announced he was not running for Governor.

He was the perfect Governor for Ohio in my opinion.
