    Ohioblog is NOT a smart selector 

    If Ohio is the key state among swing states, John Ridley is the key
    voter among swing voters. NPR's Morning Edition has turned the Hollywood screenwriter into America's swing voter during a series of interviews. In the most recent, Ridley discussed what a SelectSmart.com quiz had told him about which candidate he should choose based on his answers to a series os questions ranging from taxes to war to welfare. Ridley's answers (and totals can equal more than 100 percent) suggested his choices ranked in this order: John Kerry 55 percent, George Bush 50 percent and Socialist Walt Brown 45 percent. The latter surprised Ridley and the other percentages and simply answering the questions about priorities reinforced the idea that rather than a black or a white
    world, it is one of gray, particularly for the undecided voter.

    Ohioblog, in the interest of presidential science, went through the exercise but failed. At least the program would not give me my percentages (and it has a version for us Mac users). No matter. I know the outcome and so do you if you've been following the blog.
