Sherrod Brown has earned a second term in the Senate: editorial

Plain Dealer endorsement...

Ohio voters should re-elect Sen. Sherrod Brown because he has represented them well in Washington for the last six years. Granted, the Democrat -- whom this page did not endorse six years ago -- is often overly partisan and stands to the left of most voters in this middle-of-the-road state.

But Brown is a tireless worker and cheerleader for Ohio, its people and their interests. He's a good listener and a creative lawmaker -- valuable traits in a senator and positive reasons to vote for Brown.

There's another powerful reason to vote for Brown -- a negative one: Electing his Republican opponent, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, would reward one of the nastiest campaigns ever waged in this state. It would reward a candidate who hasn't moved beyond partisan slogans and careful sound bites. It would reward ambition untethered to substance.

No one runs for the U.S. Senate without a healthy ego or considerable ambition. But raw desire must be balanced by a willingness to study issues and to do the hard work of governing. Mandel shows little interest in either. He's simply not ready for the Senate.

1. I'm really pleased to see this editorial.

I follow Ohio politics since I have family and friends there, and Sherrod Brown is tops in my book.

Mandel will never be ready for the Senate.

3. I like the way they wrote it too.

Not wishy-washy at all. A really clear choice.
