Jack, Indiana was one of NINE Bush Red States that Obama turned Blue.<quoted text>
Show me an alternative.
I am a natural born liberal living in in souhtern Indiana. This is where they grow the pods that will one day grow to be full fledged republicans.
This seat will go republican and a candidate like Melancamp would go nowhere in Indiana. Nothing I can do about that.
Like a lot of democrats in this state I am angry with the party and disgusted with the "progressive" wing. Support for the democratic party has collapsed in this state.
So once again...SHOW ME AN ALTERNATIVE.
Proving even the Rednecks realized that for 8 years Bush/Cheney Republicans only benefit the wealthiest Americans.
The sad truth is Barack "Wall Street Bush" Obama is continuing 80%- 85% of all Bush/Cheney policy.
If McCain won he would have continued 90% of all Bush/Cheney policy.
Nothing changes in America because BOTH parties work for Wall Street.
Obama Health Care is the same Bush/Cheney Senior Citizen Prescription Drug Bill written by HMO/Pharma lobbyist in 2003 and 2006.
The last time I checked all Seniors in America are still paying the highest prices for medicines in the whole world.
An honest person like John Mellencamp will not be obligated to pay back Wall Street for winning the Indiana Senate seat.

Bushs 2005 Inauguration Celebration:
Brought to You by Corporate America
An analysis of Bushs Presidential Inaugural Committee records reveals that $17.1 million, or 96
percent, of the $17.8 million raised so far came from corporations or their senior executives,
including two corporations that effectively skirted the $250,000 cap on contributions by giving
multiple checks through subsidiaries. The analysis also shows that these same special interests
are the ones that played a leading role in funding Bushs campaignsnearly half of the
contributors to the inaugural belong to, or employ, an elite class of Bush fundraisers known as
Rangers,Pioneers and Super Rangers.
