I just had to put this up. As most of you know, I’m from Ohio. I lived there for nearly 24 years. These quotes are pulled from today’s Wall Street Journal with regards to the upcoming Ohio primary on March 4th:
“I don’t think the country is ready for a woman president yet,” says Duane Tkac, a burly vocational instructor at a prison here and a member of the local branch of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters union. “The country is in too much turmoil. I don’t think she can handle the pressure, the terrorists.” He plans to vote for Sen. Obama.
Don Pompelia, retired from the Air Force, supports Sen. Clinton. “I’m hoping Hillary gets the nomination. But if she doesn’t, I’m not voting for that guy. I’m going Republican,” he booms as he picks up his morning coffee at McDonald’s. “There are going to be a lot of people crossing over to the Republicans because he’s black.”
Ah, yes, the level of discourse has never been higher in Ohio.
I feel dumber just having read that.
