Ohio Gov Endoreses Hillary

This in from Chris Cillizza:

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has decided to endorse Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton

Frankly I'm surprised that this happened now, personally I'd prefer that our elected officials not endorse presidential candidates at all, but it's obvious that's not ever going to happen. They could at least wait until the primary for their particular state has been held before giving a "yeah" or a "nay".

I'm sure in some parts of the Ohio Democratic blogosphere this is not going to go over well since there are quite a few bloggers that support Obama and a few Edwards supporters out there that will disagree with Ted's choice. While Ted Strickland has stated he has no interest in the VP slot and has promised to serve his full term as governor on more than one occasion during the campaign trail, there are those who still want are speculating that Ted has vice presidential aspirations. While very little in Ohio politics surprises me anymore, I seriously doubt Ted wants to be Vice President. He has not hidden his admiration of Clinton but that doesn't mean he's planning on giving up Ohio for D.C.

Guess what? Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that has these 4 attributes (there are more but I forget): integrity, honor, patriotism, and compassion. I double dog dare you to find another candidate with these attributes. I got $35 in the bank that says you won't be able to find one.

I'm not really into "double dog daring", in fact that kind of makes me less inclined to join the cheerleading aspect of a campaign. While I'm still leaning towards John Edwards, who it could easily be said has those same four attributes, it's going to take more than those four attributes to handle the problems our nation faces right now. We need a president who can actually work with congress for real action as opposed to rhetoric.
