Grown Ohio. First they scrubbed their website when Sherrod Brown flip-flopped on entering the Senate race. Now they've posted an edited version of Congressman Brown's speech to a candidates' forum in Columbus. No wonder. Sherrod actually said Bush and Company are doing a pretty good job with body armor in Iraq now.

Put this in your calendars. On February 22nd, at 7 PM, there will be a forum at the Madeira Library on Miami road for the five Democratic candidates running for Congress in the second district: Gaby Downey, Thor Jacobs, Jim Parker, Jeff Sinnard, and Victoria Wulsin. Though this election will be tough, Jean Schmidt's overwhelming unpopularity coupled with the right candidate could make it competitive. It will be interesting to see the changes (if any) in the messages and presentation of Parker, Sinnard, and Wulsin since their respective runs last summer in the primary, which Paul Hackett won. It will also be a great introduction into Downey, a teacher, and Jacobs, a businessman. So, come on out!

I don't have a problem with it though it's sorta creepy that Hackett voted for GW Bush and against Billy Clinton. I think we got to pull these people over to our side. Even if Hackett loses, it's a good indication that he's now a Democrat:
There's no question Paul Hackett is a fresh face and fast-rising star in the Democratic Party. Turns out he's fresher than most. The tough-talking Iraq War veteran from Cincinnati didn't officially declare himself a "D" until nearly two years ago, a few weeks shy of his 42nd birthday. Election records in Hamilton County show that Hackett, now campaigning against Rep. Sherrod Brown for his party's U.S. Senate nomination, first picked up a Democratic ballot for the presidential primary between Howard Dean, John Kerry and John Edwards on March 2, 2004. In two earlier primaries during the 1990s, records show, Hackett had asked for Republican ballots.
