Ohio Race Will Be Key: Buckeye Bake-Off
Buckeye Bake-Off
Ohios gubernatorial race is being shaped by religion, gay adoption and a corruption scandal. What it tells us about national politics.

"The only way the Republicans can win (Governor)in Ohio is if the Democrats blow it, and theyre working at it. Democratic Party leaders pressured Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett to withdraw from the Senate race (in favor of a veteran congressman) with undercover operatives launching a whisper campaign about Hacketts service that was reminiscent of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign against Kerryand equally reprehensible." - Eleanor Clift

1. Are you suggesting that we should not vote at all?
Not even for progressive Greens? Is the sky falling? No!

It landed already in Ohio. Actual votes do not matter there. The outcome is pre-determined unless voters mobilize and say otherwise.

2. Eleanor tags another insightful article.
I read this article. It is about more than just how we are screwing up here. I talks a lot about Blackwell and the position Ohio effects the country.
