  •  Don't think he could beat Voinovich... (0+ / 0-)

    but then again, I'm not sure anyone can beat Voinovich in OH, except John Glenn (who Kerry or Gore would have been wise to pick as Veep).

    Voinovich seems like John Warner in VA - he might do things that piss off one or both parties (from the GOP side, ambivalence on tax cuts and opposition to Bolton come to mind), but most people in the state seems to have a certain respect for him.  He's probably the only GOPer in the state who has maintained a net positive approval rating throughout the Taft debacle.

    Memory of the Taft administration will be mostly gone by 2010.  I can't imagine that Voinovich will have much trouble winning again then.
