Washington Post columnist and NPR commentator E.J. Dionne is predict a victory for Hillary Clinton on Election Day, but getting no joy from the race leading up to it.   

“I value every day that I am on this earth.But there are 19 days left until this election, and I cannot wait  until they are over.  I have enjoyed this election less than any election in my entire life -- because I think there is bitterness to it and a lack of connection to problem solving.”

Clinton in Cleveland

In a speech that tried to reach out to voters of all parties -- and no party -- Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton largely addressed issues that appealed to her liberal base – increasing the minimum wage, college affordability and clean energy.

But it was her criticism of her opponent that appealed most to the crowd at Cuyahoga Community College Friday night.  

Clinton was jovial as she asked the audience if anyone had watched the presidential debate Wednesday night – teeing up her punch line.

Goodyear’s newest blimp – Wingfoot Two – was christened Friday by Savannah James – wife of LeBron James -- at the company’s hangar in Suffield.

Savannah James christened the blimp on a wet and windy day in front of hundreds of employees and their families. The festivities included a performance by the University of Akron marching band.

The two major party candidates for U.S. Senate in Ohio held their third and final debate in Cleveland last night. Freshman Sen. Rob Portman, a Republican,  faced former Gov. Ted Strickland, a Democrat. Each tried to link the other to their party’s presidential candidate. 

The default campaign mode for these two has been Ted Strickland blaming Rob Portman for trade deals with China while Portman blames Strickland for causing the Great Recession.
