I must say, Ann nails this one:

Managing the public trough isn?t like running a business.

The shareholders have more at stake than dividends. What price to please a big-time fundraiser ? $50 million?

But maintaining the public trust in our institutions is priceless.

I’m guessing people in Ohio have lost a bit of that trust. It’s up to those running on the Democrat side to demonstrate – not talk about – that trust and restore it. That is why the Strickland “gimmick” of putting out his tax return is important. It adds weight to re-balance the scale of public trust that has been tipped.
