  •  Overconfident? (0+ / 0-)

    This is Ohio, after all.  Democrats can never be overconfident.  The Idiot will be gone by 2010.  If we're lucky, we will be coming out of the Recession and Obama will look very good.  

    But Portman is liked in Cincinnati.  He looks clean, talks smart, doesn't seem too ideological.  He looks and sounds practical--and these are things Ohioans like.

    Actually, I hope Joe the Idiot Plummer does run for the GOP nomination; he will split the GOP just like "caribou Barbie" did.  We gained a lot from Palin being on the ticket: I know several Republicans who stayed home in 2008 rather than vote for her for VP.  That, to me, is the untold story of how Obama won Ohio.  He would have won anyway, but the margin was bigger because of all the Republicans who stayed home rather than vote for McCain.

    We would do well to remember that Ohio is, at best, a purple state, and work for whoever is nominated (I'm hoping Tim Ryan, but I like Mike Coleman too).
