Plunderbund and Ohio Public Radio have noted something that seems to have fallen through the cracks of the mainstream print media. Not satisfied with the notoriety he's already earned with his nationally reported efforts to restrict the Ohio vote on Election Day, Secretary of State Jon Husted is now suggesting that he would like to see a major change in the state's winner-take all electoral votes: dice them up according to congressional district results.
His rationale - which is too kind a word - is that Ohio draws too much attention as a swing state and would be less critical to the national outcome if each of its congressional districts were awarded delegates based on their votes. Spoken like a true Republican in the wake of Tuesday's results.
If Husted really wanted to dim the quadrennial glare on his state, maybe he should just go about his business in a a less partisan way without being mentioned in the national press so often as an elections officer who by hook or crook tried to "swing" the state to Mitt Romney. Don't count on it.
(Note: Plunderbund has posted my column on Josh Mandel's plans for his political future which, as you are probably aware by now, could change by the day.)
