Indiana Is My Favorite Swing State

Indiana is my favorite swing state.

(Above is Aurora, Indiana on the shores of the Ohio River)

Here’s why.

1. Indiana is not far from my long time home of Cincinnati.

2. My wife and I have been to Indiana together and I love my wife. Indiana reminds me of how much I love my wife.

3. The Ohio River runs along the Indiana/Kentucky border and the Ohio River is my favorite river.

4. Indiana has not voted for a Democrat for President since 1964 and an Obama victory in Indiana would be excellent. The latest poll shows Senator Obama up by two points in Indiana.  Here is a story from Salon about how Indiana has become a contested state

5. Back in my punk rock days I saw a Circle Jerks concert in Indianapolis.

Here is some basic information about Indiana.

What is your favorite swing state? With Senator Obama on the move across the country, there are many to choose from!

    That is the sweetest thing I’ve heard in a long time. She’s lucky to have such a great guy Neil!

    hell is real ,jesus is real, bedwetting billboards, it sums up the state. i think the hell is real one should be moved to welcome to ohio sign.

  3. Shannon–Thank you very much.

    Bill–You could go all the way down Ilinois and into Kentucky as a way home. Or drive from Chicago to Wisconsin into Canada and down into Michigan and then Ohio. These things would only add 10 or 15 hours to your drive if you need to avoid Indiana to such a degree.

    I think it would be best though if you gave Indiana another try.
