One of the last important decisions Governor Strickland has left is whom he will place into the vacant seat on the Ohio Supreme Court.
Well, his former running mate went public with what she thinks he should do.
Gov. Ted Strickland’s running mate says the vacancy on the Ohio Supreme Court is one post she’s interested in after the Democrat lost her bid this fall.
The Columbus Dispatch reported Friday that Yvette McGee Brown has said she would be open to an appointment to a two-year vacancy on the high court if Strickland asks her to serve.
Boy, way to put the Governor on the spot, Yvette.
He was considering putting soon-to-be unemployed AG Cordray in there, but now he has to consider the ramifications of publicly embarrassing the woman who would be Lieutenant Governor.
A few days ago, Ohio Dem Chairman Redfern tweeted this in response to Kasich’s 3rd cabinet pick of Steve Buehrer:
@JohnKasich to announce Sen Steve Buehrer to run BWC. Adds diversity to his cabinet. Steve’s left handed.
So if Strickland picks a white guy instead of an African-American woman, what will the Chairman tweet then?
Obviously, the answer is that it shouldn’t matter.
Selections like this should be based on ability, not superficiality.
