2004 US Presidential Election

Kerry | More On Ohio
I noticed last night that Minesota’s delgation yielded to Ohio, which then put Kerry over the top and secured his nomination. This, according to the Toledo Blade, is reflective of Ohio’s importance as a battleground state.

yes Ohio will get a lot of attention.
It seems there are two competing views here. There is the rust belt which is staunchly pro union. Some of the union members, sadly, haven’t had a personal thought in years. The mindlessly ape the Democrat party line. It’s really sad.
But Ohio has a strong agricultural component as well and the dichotomy between the two Ohio’s is very clear. Ohio is almost like a blue and red within a state. Cleveland sends idiots like Kuchinich to congress while the rural areas send republicans to columbus.
So yes’ it’s going to be interesting in Ohio.

“So, what do you think of the Democratic National Convention?”
“They really know how to party!”
Bimbo twit. That the Ohio Dems would send her says a lot about their mindset. It says even more that they aren’t embarrassed by her immaturity.
If Kerry wins by a thin margin, I guess we’ll have the dumb-asses in Ohio to thank for it.
(Before anyone slams me for the name-calling, please bear in mind that I was born and raised in Ohio. Right now, I’m very glad I no longer live there.)

Meaningless gesture. If only an exit polling company would ask Ohioans if they knew and if it mattered.
As a control, they could ask voters in another state like New Jersey, just to see howmany of them could be duped into thinking they were the “over the top” state.
