"| Reply | Permalink word. well said. in response to the earlier post about degrading john glenn, please. saying that he is old and may be a bit behind the power curve is not denigrating him. i will defend john glenn and any ohio democrat. am i disappointed he endorsed hillary? of course. do i think he still has time to see the light? absolutely. john gless will be campaigning for barack obama in ohio this fall. how do i know this, you ask? well, b/c he has kids and grandkids."
"| Reply | Permalink this was embarrassing for the ohio obama campaign. when you have ted strickland and john glenn and the Ohio dem Party behing Clinton, how do you expect to win when you bring in campaign workers from around the country, many who have been in 3-4 states beforehand, to try to win in ohio? it's baffling o me that the obama campaign didn't seem to reach out to ohio dems or st treasurer richard cordray's people more. sad, sad."
