The big day is here

Weâ??ve experienced, or maybe endured, one of most intense campaign seasons in memory here in Indiana.

Perhaps you were one of the people who pollsters and news organization kept saying would turn this primary election, the undecideds.

If you voted in the Democratic primary, whom did you back?

Clinton or Obama? Long Thompson or Schellinger?
  • Obama, Schellinger, Myers, Taylor.
  • Obama, because I believe her deserves a chance to take on McCain. I didn't vote in any other race on the Democratic ballot (I live in Hamilton County). I'll be supporting Daniels again in November, so I see no need to add my voice to the Democratic gubernatorial primary battle.
  • too bad that there wasn't the Schellinger, Taylor, Obama, (name starts with P)

    Then we will have a goverment that will say what they will do... S.T.O.P. working.
  • Obama - if Hillary were to run, she would take the party down in flames. But, sadly, she, like her husband (whom I voted for twice, but what choice did one really have?), doesn't care - it's all about ME. Forget the party and the country and the world. ME.

    Obama will be a great President.

    Long for Congress.
  • Obama, Thompson, though Daniels will most likely get my vote in the election, and Woody Myers for 7th District. I consider myself an independent with Libertarian leanings, though I typically vote for the person that I think is most qualified and will do the best job, regardless of party. I think Obama is a good choice for president. I don't trust Hillary and never have. As John says above, it's all about her and not what's best for the country. I really believe she would say or do just about anything to get the nomination. I voted for Myers, though it was close for me between him or Orentlicher. I do NOT want Carson as my rep. I'm still annoyed at the democratic party for giving him the nom last time when the there were so many other great candidates available, with experience and education. This is not a monarchy or a dynasty. Name alone should not automatically make you the chosen one. That goes for the Bush's and the Clintons of the world too!
  • I'm a lifelong Republican but I was going to vote for Obama... except that I arrived at the polling place 5 minutes late. It's probably 'divine intervention' anyway because my father, who passed away 5 years ago, would have killed me, er, given me an earful for eternity when I see him again in heaven.
  • Ok. Ok. Ok. What is the obsession? Obama says; change, bring people together, meet with any foreign leader, no gas tax breaks, etc. etc. etc.
    Does anyone really know what this guy will do? He's getting trendy, rockstar, like votes. Somewhat like your cool if you like Obama. Mainly because he makes a smooth speech. My guess is he won't be able to do anything for 4 years. McCain gets my vote.
  • The obsession with Obama is that he is the only one with a chance to get something done in the next four years. He will end our involvement in Iraq in a responsible way, he will meet with all foreign leader (keep your friends close and your enemies closer), he will restore our standing in the world, he will restore the constitution as the law of the land and nominate judges that will do the same versus handing the executive branch dictator like powers, he will end our dependence on oil, he will work with all stakeholders to find a solution to our healthcare crisis and most importantly, he will inspire a lost generation of black teenagers to stay in school and become productive members of society!

    Obama, Thompson, would have voted for McGoff!

  1. I think the poster was being sarcastic and only posting or making fun of what is usually posted on here about anything being built in BR or d'town for that matter.

  2. Great news IRL fans: TURBO the IMS sanctioned movie about slugs running the Indy 500 has caught the Securities and Exchange Commission because Dreamworks had to take a $132MILLION write down...because the movie was such a flop. See, the Indy/IMS magic soiled another pair of drawers. Bwahahahahahaha! How's CARTOWN doing? HAHAHAHA...Indy is for losers.

  3. So disappointed in WIBC. This is the last straw to lose a good local morning program. I used to be able to rely on WIBC to give me good local information, news, weather and traffic on my 45 minute commute.Two incidents when I needed local, accurate information regarding severe weather were the first signs I could not now rely on WIBC. I work weekend 12 hour nights for a downtown hospital. This past winter when we had the worst snowfall in my 50 years of life, I came home on a Sunday morning, went to sleep (because I was to go back in Sunday night for another 12 hour shift), and woke up around 1 p.m. to a house with no electricity. I keep an old battery powered radio around and turned on WIBC to see what was going on with the winter storm and the roads and the power outage. Sigh. Only policital stuff. Not even a break in to update on the winter storm warning. The second weather incident occurred when I was driving home during a severe thunderstorm a few months ago. I had already gotten a call from my husband that a tornado warning was just southwest of where I had been. I turned to WIBC to find out what direction the storm was headed so I could figure out a route home, only to find Rush on the air, and again, no breaking away from this stupidity to give me information. Thank God for my phone, which gave me the warning that I was driving in an area where a tornado was seen. Thanks for nothing WIBC. Good luck to you, Steve! We need more of you and not the politics of hatred that WIBC wants to shove at us. Good thing I have Satellite radio.

  4. I read the retail roundup article and tried Burritos and Beers tonight. I'm glad I did, for the food was great. Fresh authentic Mexican food. Great seasoning on the carne asada. A must try!!! Thanks for sharing.

  5. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...
