I totally agree with Tim. Strickland is STILL our governor, and keeping his commitment to his duties as our governor.

Strickland is really sticking it to these people he is appointing knowing full well that Kasich has the right and authority to appoint people he thinks will help his platform. These appointees shouldn't count on these positions at all after January. Kasich needs to clean house on ALL Strickland appointments. These people are just going to become a cancer and do whatever is necessary to undermind the new administration. Don't everyone go crying and boohooing, every administration does it and if they don't, they don't to their own detriment.
But Strickland is STILL GOVERNOR until late January, 2010, and AS SUCH, he has both the power AND the right to appoint whomever he wants, just as Kasich will, but ONLY after he becomes Governor. In many cases, Strickland's appointees have been nominated for MONTHS, but the Statehouse Republicans have been blocking their approval. What's fair is fair, Kasich can do what he wants AFTER he takes office, but he does NOT have that right at the present time........

AMEN Strictland cleaned house when he took office. He obolished departments and quickly fired many vital qualified people. Strictland and friends should be removed.
BYE BYE TED! Even Obama couldnt save your tired butt.
You are correct! In addition,__Strickland failed to appoint board members for the first 2 years in office! He wasn't worried then. The people voted him out, that means his cronies too! They failed time and time again. If anyone seriously thinks Kasich should keep any of them, they are just plain old St*pid. Strickland walked in with his volunteers and got rid of people with actual knowledge. That is why he failed. He & his apapointees weren't smart enough to know you need people w/ experience and knowledge.

Does the phrase, "Graceful exit" come to mind to anyone? Strickland is just showing the same arrogance and ignorance that rightfully cost him his job. These 11th hour maneuverings make him look all the more pathetic.
Best post I have read on this site in months. You hit it right on the head. The unmitigated arrogance of this buffoon is what lost him the election. He is on track to help the Dems lose even more in 2012. He and Brown should follow Cordray's example and show a little humility. He is quietly assisting in the transition while Teddy throws all the hissy fits and Brown starts begging for another government handout job.

Alot of these posts talk about Kasich's experience leading government or hiring leaders. Where is the evidence? As a US Representative, he was not a decision-maker but an opinion (vote) caster. And we know what happened on Wall Street -- funny he and all his supporters ignore that part of his resume.

Good leaders surround themselves with a balance of individuals who will support and challenge their positions not patsies and yes-men. No matter what your political affiliation, a balance is what's best for Ohio. If one man had all the answers, they would refer to him as God. Are all the governor-elect supporters ready to give him that title?

Oh please. And what has Ted accomplished other than appoint a record number of losers, liars and idiots?

Kasich has exactly the same gov't experience as Strickland. Add to that Lehman Bros and Fox TV. I would also like to point out that Kasich was in the US House a lot longer than Ted and had better leadership position's within his party. So let's go back to Strickland's accomplishments during his time as Governor. We can hold off on talking about Kasich accomplishments at least until he becomes Governor.
