Ted Strickland obviously has a thing for the classroom.
The former Democratic governor of Ohio, who lost his re-election bid in 2010, has two master's degrees and a doctorate. This spring, at age 70, he'll return to school again as a resident fellow at Harvard University's Institute of Politics.
Strickland tells The Associated Press he plans to teach an undergraduate course in class warfare in America.

He says he plans to invite speakers who run the gamut from labor unions to corporations.
He is among seven participants in the program, located within the university's Kennedy School of Government.

Other former congressmen, a public radio journalist, a former president of the Wal-Mart Foundation, and the former chief of staff to U.S. Sen. Scott Brown are also on the list.
