Nine bite-size Lemmon Drops to nibble on while waiting for Gov. Bob Taft to ride off into the sunset:
Apparently, absence doesn't always make the heart grow fonder.
At least not after a year.
Mr. Ford might fare better in Zogby's 2008 poll, assuming one is done, especially if Toledo is experiencing Carty fatigue as it did in 2001, at the end of his second term.
Then again, if construction is wrapping up on the downtown arena and the Marina District, Mr. Finkbeiner might as well be unopposed in '09.
Toledo has more than its share of naysayers partly because major projects are too often derailed.
Mr. Gerken and Ms. Skeldon Wozniak seem determined not to let that happen this time. Maintaining momentum in a city as apathetic as Toledo is no easy task.
One of her TV ads insinuates that her Democratic opponent, Marc Dann, is unworthy of holding the office because he has provided legal defense for "child molesters."
