CINCINNATI (TDB) -- From his perch overlooking the river on the other side of the state, David Potts at Ohio Valley Politics has noticed the Clinton campaign tried to plant questions with attendees at the New York senator's town hall events. He recognizes the practice as low on the ethics scale, and senses a warning sign that sleazeclouds could be gathering in the wind. It reminds him of FEMA's fake news conference.
Potts appears to be the first Democratic blogger in Ohio to suggest out loud that popular Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland's endorsement of Clinton's presidential campaign could cost the governor some political support in his own state. Potts clearly seems uncomfortable with Clinton (I don't know who he favors in the Dem field).
"I've never had any problem with Governor (and my former Congressman) Strickland, but if he's going to endorse someone that does stuff like this I'm really going to have to rethink my position on him."
