We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Veteran Paul Hackett is out of Ohio Politics for the moment. After a near upset against a Republican in a heavily Republican district, Hackett decided to go after one of Ohio's senate seats. Unfortunately, it appears he wasn't being backed for the slot the Democratic establishment and they chose Sherrod Brown, a 7-term incumbant congressman.
While Brown is politically safer, it also show the part has no cahoneys. As some would argue, we knew that but it's complete and utter bullshit that they don't. They wanted him to take a shot at the seat he almost won before, but being a man of honor, he had made promises to others who wanted to run he wouldn't. Of course the fact he was man of honor means he probably wouldn't have lasted long anyway. Rolling Stone had a pretty good opinion piece on the matter.
Gary Hart also had a few words on the this issue. Hart wasn't too happy about this display of "good ol' boy politics" and the way it slapped down another candidate.
