Overheard in Southern Ohio
A report from the road by an out-of-state friend driving to Cleveland:
The fry cook says to the manager, "He picked a woman."
The manager responds: "Do I want a woman as a vice president or a black man as president? I think I want a black man."
"Not to mention I don't want McCain."
"Not to mention she was mayor of a small town a few years ago."
"Not to mention I don't want four more years of Bush."
Then the cashier turns to the lone customer and says "Not to mention, I forgot to give you your 63 cents change."
This is at a McDonalds in Warren County.
My friend's conclusion: Ohio really is a swing state. (By the way, check out this month's feature on the election to see how we might do as a swing state.)
