  •  Just feels like the Dems need a draw.... (0+ / 0-)

    ...even if they all cut the cord, who will Dems come out in droves for to support?  Fisher doesn't strike me as that guy (which is why I was hoping for Brunner before, even though as I mentioned earlier, it likely would still have been a longshot).

    •  It would be a local matter (0+ / 0-)

      The statewide ticket is screwed; too late to save it but for some individual races. Cordrey could win attorney general if he announced a Strickland indictment on any one of a dozen possible charges. Will Cordrey do that? No.

      Individual congressional Dems could still win. Space could win in OH-18, Sutton could hold her seat, and Kilroy could hold hers if all three came out and demanded the same ethical standards in Ohio as they have demanded in the Rangel case.

      Will they do that? Almost certainly not.
