Ohio Governor: Will “Absolutely Not” Be Obama’s VP

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has pretty conclusively ruled himself out of the Democratic veepstakes: “If drafted, I will not run; nominated, I will not accept; and if elected, I will not serve,” Strickland said in an interview with NPR’s “All Things Considered.” “So, I don’t know how more crystal clear I can be. That does not mean that I am any less committed to helping Barack Obama become the next president.”

Maybe not, but Strickland would have been pretty helpful on Obama’s ticket: he’s the governor of a state Obama absolutely has to win, was a Hillary Clinton supporter, is popular with white working-class voters, and deftly handled the Marc Dann scandal. His Sherman statement takes a promising name off Obama’s list.
