There’s plenty of star power at the Democratic National Committee in Philadelphia this week. And among those famous faces is a somewhat infamous one from Ohio who’s been quietly chatting with convention-goers. He's the former mayor of Cincinnati – who most people know from his infamous nationally syndicated talk show.

Loud and colorful protests have been getting a lot of attention at both the Democratic National Convention this week and the Republicans’ convention last week.

The first day of the Republican National Convention began with harsh words for Gov. John Kasich who is in town but not attending the convention, over an apparent rift between the former presidential candidate and the presumptive nominee.

No Republican has ever won the White House without Ohio, and the Buckeye State’s delegation usually gets prime real estate at the convention because of that. But this time Ohio’s delegates, who are pledged to Gov. John Kasich, are not happy with their location on the floor.

Strickland Campaign

Although the Democrats wanted to come to Cleveland and throw jabs at Republicans during their national convention, it’s former Gov. Ted Strickland who’s taking flak for the use of what some are calling “racially insensitive” propaganda.

As expected, loud but peaceful protestors greeted the delegates as they arrived today, taking to the streets as the delegates were leaving their hotels for their evening activities.
