    ...I doubt there will be a challenge.  No one really wants to go up against Sherrod Brown.

      But I think Brown could someday be an Ohio icon.  He has a future beyond being the Senior Senator of OH.  Could be a unique VP pick in 2016.

        next few decades Ohio Democrats may well remember him  the same way Texas Democrats remember Ralph Yarborough.

          The only flaw in your theory. It's practically cast in granite that this is a half & half state. It's not moving anywhere, except maybe a tad to the left thanks to Kasich.

      because he's confident that his corporate puppetmasters can outspend Sherrod 5-1, and win this seat for him. And it's possible. Mandel is so empty and so thoroughly owned, they want him in really bad. And they want him on fast-track to the White House. i hear they are using the "Obama didn't have much experience  either" excuse already. The difference is that Obama didn't have too much experience in elected office, but he had experience – and a well-defined and thoughtful set of positions.

      Mandel stands for nothing other than serving his donors.

      be concerned with going up against Brown. They aren't operating with the same blinders as most people. But if they are happy with Mandel, then that's that.
