Interesting Must-Read at Michael Meckler's blog

Short post for now, but if you haven't read it yet, Michael Meckler has a very interesting article on his blog about how the 2006 elections parellel events surrounding the 1970s elections.

Particularly this money quote:
Just as 1968 was a bad year for Ohio Democrats, 1970 was a bad year for Ohio Republicans. A scandal involving GOP state treasurer John Herbert's putting state money in a shady investment with campaign contributors -- the Crofters scandal -- led to the defeat of nearly all GOP statewide officeholders. Furthermore, Rhodes had personally been tainted by the Kent State shootings that took place in that year.
Starting to sound like a good year for the Ohio Democratic ticket.
