    As you'll see from my interview with Ohio Gov Ted Strickland, a Hillary Clinton supporter, he believes that both candidates did well in Tuesday night's debate in Cleveland. That doesn't sound like what Mrs. Clinton needed at a time when Barack Obama is surging nationally, pulling even with her in Texas, and drawing close in Ohio.
