The Path to the White House Leads Through Ohio

In the 2004 United States Presidential Election, Ohio was one of the "battleground" states. George Bush's victory in the state was by only 2.11%. The Next President of the United States will likely need to win Ohio to achieve an electoral victory. On March 4, Hillary Clinton will need to win Ohio to continue her quest for the Democratic nomination against Barack Obama.

To help Clinton, Obama and McCain find their way around the state, I recommend one of these handy Ohio map T-shirts from my collection.

Important Ohio facts:

Ohio was the 17th state to enter the Union, in 1803.

In 1836, Ohio lost the Ohio-Michigan War, thus being obliged to keep Toledo.

Seven presidents were born in Ohio, making it second to Virginia's eight.

Ohio is known as the "Buckeye State", however, never eat a real buckeye nut, as they are poisonous.

The State Fossil of Ohio is the trilobite.
