One lesson coming out of the Massachusetts Senate race is that, so far, Democrats have completely failed at populism. Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland is trying to remedy that. From the Dayton Daily News:Without naming Republican opponent John Kasich by name, Strickland, 68, took several swipes at Wall Street. Kasich, a former U.S. House member from suburban Columbus also worked as a managing director for Lehman Brothers, the investment bank that collapsed in 2008 helping trigger the economic slump.
"Ohio well knows that this recession did not start on High Street in Columbus or Market Street in Akron or on Vine Street in Cincinnati," he said. "It started on Wall Street."
Whether Kasich's time at Lehman Brothers really is a political liability is an open question. He wasn't working for the company from Wall Street. He was working for them from Columbus.
Regardless, this is the type of message I expect to hear a lot more of from Democrats.
