DNC Backstage Pass: A Chat With Ted Strickland

So, Teshima and I were on the convention floor the other day at the Pepsi Center when, low and behold, who do we see but Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, a Democrat. As you know, Ohio is a hot spot political battleground (lest we forget 2004).

Anyway, I was able to pull the governor aside for a short chat. We talked about the division of delegate votes between Sen. Barack Obama and former Sen. Hillary Clinton and the reconciliation of those votes here in Denver, and what outcome we might expect Strickland's (also a former congressman) state to deliver come November.

Take a listen, and let us know what you think:
