Is Finkbeiner for Clinton or Obama?

By now everyone knows Democrat Carty Finkbeiner, Toledo’s Mayor, told the U. S. Marines they’ve not welcome in his city.

What we don’t know is which of the two front-running candidates for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination Finkbeiner favors.

Is it Clinton or Obama?

The upcoming Ohio primary, with its large block of delegates, is critical for both candidates.

So who’s Finkbeiner supporting?

Yes, it’s possible Finkbeiner isn’t supporting either candidate.

Whatever the case, we ought to know.

And the public ought to know how Clinton and Obama feel about Finkbeiner hanging out a “MARINES NOT WELCOME” sign In Toledo.

If Finkbeiner was a Republican, the Democratic- dominated MSM would be all over GOP candidates Huckabee and McCain demanding to know how they felt about Finkbeiner’s outrage.

MSM should do the same with Clinton and Obama.

And so should talk radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh.

In terms of print reporting, Ignazio Messina at the Toledo Blade has the most informative report I found today.
