Ted Strickland told NPR's "All Things Considered" that he'd work hard for Barack Obama. "But oh, by the way, I have no time to be your vice-president. I'm too busy over here in Ohio."
I guess you're just supposed to take Strickland's remarks on the face of it (yes, David Axelrod says so) but WHAT IS THE BACKSTORY?
Who wouldn't just jump at the chance to be Obama's VP? Only a guy who thinks the ship might sink.
