Go Away

One-term former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland is back in the news (also getting himself back in the news in the process). Unlike most former governors who accept the results of an election and exit the stage, Strickland has taken the “Jimmy Carter” route.

His latest foray into the political discourse comes in the form of a role of DNC spokesman against the 2012 GOP frontrunner, Mitt Romney.

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:  — The Democratic National Committee on Monday enlisted former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland to help mount a small but punchy television and Internet attack on Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

Strickland appeared at Ohio Democratic Party headquarters to announce the launch of a 30-second commercial that aims to paint Romney as a serial flip-flopper on issues dear to voters.

Unless you are a corpse, you probably know that ole Ted wants his last job back. He must think that someone will owe him a favor by getting involved here. I personally thought he retired and moved back to Kentucky, but maybe I am wrong.

On a side note, maybe Ted can use the soon to be deceased license plates his wife designed as a background for his 2014 yard signs.
