Hoosiers?


If KMBC in Kansas City is correct, and they might not be, as the Obama campaign is saying that they had bumper stickers printed up for several candidates, fellow Hoosier Evan Bayh is the choice. He's a pretty conservative choice, but might be just the ticket for skittish blue color voters who, by the way, definitely do not cling to guns or religion. I checked.

And this would put my home state into play, so say the pundits. Which, if I can dare to dream for a moment, would be glorious. When was the last time Indiana went Dem in a presidential election? Johnson in 1964, I believe. And before that, it was 1936.

So, the state that voted for Wilkie over Roosevelt in 1940, going for Obama? Be still my heart.

Anyway, he's now supposedly moved his veep announcement to Saturday, so we'll have to wait a little longer to know for sure.

YI'd like to forget entirely about that potatoe head Quayle being a Hoosier.

I say Joe Biden. I love you, but Evan is a big zero, except for his strong support for the invasion of Iraq.

Evan - yeah we love him in Indiana - but he needs to stay in Indiana. Evan reminds me of Edwards. I hate Edwards, especially after 2004 - and well, I can't trust anyone who reminds me of him.

I was for Biden before this primary process but he dropped out before I could vote for him.

Biden. is the choice - and I am so happy about that! BIDEN IS A BAD ASS!

It's too bad people like Leahy are too smart to jump on a presidential ticket. Sure would like to see a Dem VP with teeth.

Okay, so not Bayh. That's what I get for reading Politico.

It will be interesting to see if Biden can keep his foot out of his mouth until the election.
