I grew up in Indiana. There are enough good l' boys and conservatives to keep Indiana staunchly Republican. I looked it up and Indiana has voted Republican in every Presidential election since 1964 for Lyndon Johnson. Usually, they just put a little red Indiana in the map before the vote count starts. Kind of tough if you don't vote Republican. sigh.
But look at this, baby:
Obama 1,359,875 50%
McCain 1,337,157 49%
It's a pretty nice feeling to have the candidate you voted for actually win.
