Ohio Governor Ted Strickland must REALLY not want to be vice president. Either that or he suffers from a political Achilles Heel: uncontrollable honesty.
Strickland, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, told the Columbus Dispatch what he thinks about Iowa's first-in-the-nation caucus:
In an interview with The Dispatch last week, Strickland said the Iowa caucuses make "no sense." He called the GOP and Democratic caucuses "hugely undemocratic," because the process "excludes so many people." Anyone who happens to be working or is sick or too old to get out for a few hours Thursday night won't be able to participate, Strickland said.
"I'd like to see both parties say, 'We're going to bring this to an end,' " Strickland said, adding that he has no problem with the New Hampshire primary Jan. 8, because "at least it's an election."
"Iowa is not an attractive place to be in the wintertime," Strickland said, adding that Iowa "is not a representative state and the caucus is not a fair way to register public opinion, in my judgment."
Strickland, by the way, spent Saturday campaigning for Clinton in Iowa.
