The Ohio lawyer and Iraq war veteran whose brief run for Senate attracted national attention and challenged the Democratic establishment has reconciled with the party's nominee.
Paul Hackett said Monday that he blames himself for fomenting discord within the party and that he was hurting himself and his former primary opponent, U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown, by sulking over the way his primary challenge ended in February.
"It's totally unproductive for me to be largely responsible for this antagonistic relationship between me and Sherrod," Hackett told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Monday.
It's Paul Hackett's fault that Sherrod Brown lied and entered the senate race after he promised he would not?
It's Paul Hackett's fault that the national Democrat money men spiked his campaign?
It's Paul Hackett's fault that the powers that be in the Democrat Party (or was it a Kossak?) spread rumors that he was a WAR CRIMINAL?
Every day yet another reason to be happy that Jean Schmidt is representing the fine people of Ohio's 2nd Congressional District!
