Secretary of State, 2007Best Moments:
Fired old Cuyahoga County elections board. Clarified key election rules. Released study of voting systems’ security flaws. Worst Moments:
Pushed for new voting systems that the state wouldn’t pay for and that would lose votes
. Fought with Republicans in Legislature and on election boards. DEFENSE:
“I’m coming at this as a former judge and someone who cares deeply about making sure voters have confidence in the election system.” The Part:
Strong woman, seems organized and in control, until anxiety leads to hasty decisions — Julianne Moore, combining her turns as FBI agent Clarice Starling in Hannibal
and as Boogie Nights’
panicky porn queen, Amber Waves.
