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.

Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.

Leave it to Republicans to think that there is such as thing as beeing *too* educated.

The "overly educated" quip was tongue in cheek, but it is a little strange that the guy has that many degrees.
