    Senate confirmation to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is that person going to win statewide office?

      Cordray would be a better candidate than FitzGerald. He has already run statewide - he got bounced in the 2010 elections, along with Ted Strickland.

      Reforms come from below. No man with four aces howls for a new deal.

      he's going to have to make a move soon. You would think he'd have done it before they began the charade of confirmation hearings again. If he's not confirmed he can stay until the end of this year. If he does that, it's too late for him to run for governor. The race will be well under way by then. My own personal feeling (and I have no proof of this, but no one seems to have real proof to the contrary) is that Rich likes what he's doing in D.C. and will stay as long as he can. And he DOESN'T really enjoy campaigning. I've seen proof of that with my own eyes. So I think if his gig at the CFPB ends at the end of this year, he'll take a job at a think tank or nonprofit or advocacy organization. He'll be in huge demand and probably offered way more money than he's ever made. With two teenagers heading to college soon, that would have to be tempting. I also wonder whether he would uproot his twins while they are in high school to move back to Ohio.

      I think Ed is a terrific candidate. He's hard-working, honest, pragmatic and an engaging campaigner. He can efficiently dismantle Kasich's hideous budgets. I also think Kasich will come off as an arrogant bully next to him.  Ed is very genial and even-tempered in public meetings.

      Jon Husted is a dick.

        Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson will drop some kind of steamy mess in the county's lap in the mean time and blame Fitzgerald, maybe concerning consolidation of the various municipalities in the county.

        I'd tip you but they cut off my tip box. The TSA would put Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad on the no-fly list.
