Paul Hackett gets a clue

Former Ohio senate hopeful Paul Hackett, darling of out-of-state progressives everywhere, has decided to close ranks with his former primary opponent. According to the Associated Press,

Paul Hackett said on Monday that he blames himself for fomenting discord within the party and that he was hurting himself and his former primary opponent, Rep. Sherrod Brown, by sulking over the way his primary challenge ended in February. The two rallied in Cincinnati in Monday to show their new unity.

"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.

All I have to say is it's about time.

It's great that Hackett didn't try to excuse himself either. My estimation of him has gone up--for what that's worth.

Mine has too. I think he can be a good thing for Ohio if he gets his act together.
