Hillary 7, Obama 4

Hillary Clinton picked up another Ohio superdelegate Saturday - Rep. Tim Ryan, the Youngstown Democrat who is eyeing a run for the U.S. Senate in 2010.

The Ryan pick-up brings Clinton's total to 7 committed superdelegates. Barack Obama has four, with another 10 still up for grabs.

Ryan, who is considering a run for the Senate seat of incumbent Republican George Voinovich, was to have been the keynote speaker at the Clermont County Democratic Party's Golden Donkey Dinner in Eastgate Saturday night, but he cancelled when his mother became ill.

Hamilton County Commissioner David Pepper - another Clinton supporter, though not a superdelegate - was Ryan's pinch-hitter.

Not much mystery in Ryan's endorsement - Clinton won 63 percent of the vote in his northeast Ohio district in the March 4 primary, compared to 35 percent for Obama.

I see a Hillary scheme coming on here and I can't stand to think of Wild Bill back in the peoples' White house.
Election stealing is a Billary art form.

I heard that Jim Parker has been speaking all throughout the State of Ohio at Democratic events.

Is he running for Senate in the Democratic primary in 2010? Did anybody see George Voinovich's column on healthcare? Our current Senator doesn't know anything about healthcare. I sure would like to see a Parker Voinovich debate on that topic.
