Ohio Democratic Party Is Now Selling Obama Gear: Official Online Store Taking Orders
CINCINNATI (TDB) -- There doesn't seem to be any Hillary Clinton merchandise available today except for a couple of campaign buttons that are leftovers from a state fundraising dinner sponsored by the ODP. And the online store says it all -- the grueling nomination contest is finally finished. One of the campaign buttons still for sale displays a face shot of Hillary's top Ohio backer, Gov. Ted Strickland, alongside her mug. It makes it look like they were running on the same ticket. (Grab one as a collectible?) But she's dropping out of the presidential campaign Saturday, and a Clinton-Strickland ticket turns out to be pure fantasy. By fall, Obama merchandise will be flooding the state party's online store. Hope that it all is made in the USA.
