40. This Ohio skeptic thinks otherwise
I worked on RON, helping get signatures and knocking on doors. As a previous poster noted, the issues were long and somnambulistic--almost Kerryesque, but I digress. The campaign organizers were manic and made freshman mistakes. We did not have a huge organization. The issues were written by a tweedy prof with no input from the roots radicals. The opposition funded lots of slick commercials. We got stabbed in the back by Cuyahoga Cty Dem Chairman Jimmy "the icepick" Dimora, who produced a robocall message funded by Ohio-First-Energy.

Come another year, things ain't gonna get better here and Ohioans are going to be wishing they had voted for RON--again, Kerryesque.

Thanks for your warm thoughts.
