Primaries

Tomorrow, Indiana and North Carolina hold their Democratic presidential primaries. For the first time in my life (at least my memory, anyway) my home state will actually play a role in deciding a presidential candidate. Typically, the candidates have been decided by the time the Indiana primary has rolled around and it's all just a big formality. This time, the people of Indiana have a say in who the next Democratic presidential candidate will be. The best part?

Indiana will go to McCain in the general election. Indiana always goes Republican.

  2. 'Indiana voted for Jimmy Carter.'

    Absolutely not true. The last time Indiana voted for a Democrat was Johnson in 1964. Do not blame Carter on Indiana.

  3. Shit, I was looking at an old election map when red states were Democratic and blue were Republican.

    I renounce my snarky comment.
