    At least it wasn't in Ohio. I know some people here love to insist that we've been betrayed by the Democrats in Washington and by Obama personally, and THAT caused our losses in 2010.

    Not in Ohio. Our losses were caused by in-state issues — the state party focusing too much on undecided and unmotivated voters, and also their cavalier unconcern with the importance of women's issues, which were not yet in the spotlight they are now, but which played a large part in our Ohio losses in 2010. And that had nothing to do with anything going on in Washington, and everything to do with what was happening with our state ticket.

    Jon Husted is a dick.
