Will Ohio's Learned Governor Be Obama's Running Mate?
Senator Barack Obama probably needs to win Ohio to prevail in the Electoral College. With that in mind, Obama may have Ohio Governor Ted Strickland on his short list of potential running mates, if London bookies are right. Strickland was overly educated in the Bluegrass state, having received his bachelor's degree from Asbury College, a master's degree from the University of Kentucky, another master's degree from Asbury Theological Seminary, and to top it all off, a doctorate in psychology from UK. Strickland's Kentucky connections probably won't do Obama much good trying to woo Kentucky voters, given how low Obama's popularity is in the Commonwealth, but Strickland may be just what is needed to tip Ohio Obama's way.
