Strickland not happy about appearing in Romney ad

Former Democratic Ohio Governor Ted Strickland says a tv ad by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney takes a moment from "a very heated" 2008 Democratic presidential primary campaign. The 2012 Obama campaign co-chair is seen in the ad nodding in agreement behind 2008 candidate Hillary Clinton as she criticizes Obama for mailings she says distorted her record. The Romney ad claims Obama uses the same tactics against him. Strickland says the Romney ad is outdated because of Clinton's subsequent support for Obama and service as his Secretary of State.  A Romney campaign spokesperson declines to discuss details of or future plans for the ad.
