What do DUers thinkk of when they see Sherrod Brown

I always remember the ReTHUG lady who thought she had a scandal when she saw him kissing Connie Schultz - only to discover that the man was kissing his wife.

That was one of the best jokes ever

2. Strength. Integrity. Outspoken. Unafraid. Those are the things I think about when I see

Sherrod Brown.

3. I like him. Have for a long time.

Wouldn't mind seeing him as Hillary's running mate. It'd be shrewd geographically, especially with Ohio a swing state. HOWEVER, I'd hate to take a good Dem out of the Senate. Same major reason I'd hesitate about Elizabeth Warren. In both states, there's a CON in the governor's office.

Besides the fact he is a bright progressive democrat I like his gruff raspy voice. it makes for a no nonsense down to earth message delivery.

Sharod Brown is a good person. Pretty much the only politician that keeps it real for Ohio.

9. What I think of makes me cry

When I see Sherrod Brown, I remember him flying to Washington in order to cast the crucial 60th vote to break the filibuster on the Affordable Care Act - on what must have been the worst day of his life.

Brown strode into the chamber at 10:45 p.m., wearing a dark suit and no smile. He placed his arm around Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), shook the hand of Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and then gave the clerk a thumbs up, ending what had been one of the longest votes in Senate history. Brown's was the critical vote Senate Democrats needed to ensure that the signature legislation of President Obama's young administration passed without a GOP filibuster. Three Republicans broke ranks to support it.

Brown, whose 88-year-old mother died of leukemia last week, had dashed from her memorial viewing in Ohio last night and boarded a government aircraft provided by the White House that landed at Andrews Air Force Base. The journey illustrated the extraordinary steps Democrats took to guarantee a major victory.

For Brown, the moment turned on the memory of his mother, who was raised in a small Georgia town during the Great Depression. A champion of social and racial justice, Emily Campbell Brown read and reread Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" and insisted that her boys address African American adults not by their first names but with "Mr." or "Mrs."

She cast her first vote in 1944 for Franklin D. Roosevelt, and even as she lay dying she wanted to live long enough to see Barack Obama in the White House. And so it was a poignant moment last night for the son who knew that his vote would make a difference.

14. Because Brown always looks disheveled and speaks with a raspy voice, like Falk's Columbo character.

15. I like Sherrod. He seems like a decent guy, honest and hard-working.

I think he'd make a great VP, but he is hard to understand at times, due to his voice. That is not a reason to go "thumbs-down" on him.

18. Sherrod Brown--- A VP choice that would not only help Hillary in the swing state of Ohio

but also help her with those blue collar men who don't like Trump but just can't quite yet handle voting for a woman for president. I know that sounds terrible...but unfortunately there are a lot of (too many) men who are having a hard time voting for a woman. It is just that simple. I have always thought Sherrod, besides being a great liberal, populist voice (and a very masculine sounding voice it is, too!) would bring just enough testosterone to the ticket to help the wobbly male voters get over their "mommy made me clean up my room" attitude and vote for Hillary.

22. A genuinely good guy who would be capable of running the country

 

in the unlikely and unhappy event that Sec. Clinton should become incapacitated due to health problems or an accident. One really does have to think about that. Biden and Gore would have been able to pick up the flag. So would have Cheney, but we can all thank our lucky stars that dumya was healthy. The Dumya/Darth combo was bad enough, but pure Cheney would have been worse.

23. He needs Donald's comb....

I kid, I kid! He's one of the most progressive and honest people in government today. Glad he's in the Senate. I had the pleasure of meeting him in person during a Take Back America conference in DC. He struck me as genuine and down-to-earth.

26. High School.

he was born in my hometown, Mansfield Ohio. He spoke to my High School in 1978; he was the youngest State Representative of Ohio at that time. I remember thinking he was not much older than me; and he was really good looking. ha!

32. I think of how important statewide mid term elections are

Brown would make an excellent VP but can't even be considered as we would lose his Senate seat for 2 years thanks to how badly we bungled the gubentorial election in 2014.

33. remember Connie Schultz great...

...take down very well. It was a delicious moment.

I think Senator Brown would be a fine choice. I do share the concern over the loss of his senate seat.
