  •  Hi Buckeye (11+ / 0-)

    Thank you, Buckeye.  

    I've been around, just never commented much  :)

    Sadly, I agree with you.   Looks like Kasich will be re-elected, and the Republicans down the ballot as well.  

    A lot of the Dems in the cities think President is all that matters.  When it's the opposite that matters most -- local politics (where state representatives are elected, children are educated, and party committee members are picked- those that ultimately help make up the official political platforms of the two parties).   It's really depressing.  

    I'm hoping to see change in my lifetime, but the last 20 years have gone in the opposite direction.  I don't have high hopes.

      Why on earth would you say something as defeatist and counterproductive as it looks like all the Republicans will e re-elected? The economy is awful and Kasich's numbers are not good. Many polls have him virtually tied with his Democratic opponent Ed FitzGerald. Several of the other races look extremely competitive as well. If a miracle doesn't happen for them — a sudden reversal of job losses, for instance — they will probably lose several of their offices if not all of them.

      Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.
