The Deal Remains

Despite the push by a few radicals, the Hamilton County Democratic Party Central Committee voted overwhelmingly to support "the deal" entered into by Chairman Burke. Read the Enquirer story here.

I found it curious that Tom Luken, a longtime political figure in this community, lead this fight to undermine party leadership. Tom Luken has made more than a few deals to benefit his political career. In fact, he was instrumental in a deal in the early 1970s with the charterites to "trade" the mayorship of Cincinnati. It seems odd that Mr. Luken would be so adamant about this.

Let's put the issue of "the deal" behind us now. It's time for us to face off with the Democrats from the White House to the Courthouse.
