    No one can be this stupid, can they? One Republican wins on a night where many democrats will be winning, and out comes the vitriol. How pathetic.

    Obviously you don't even live in Indiana, because Daniels is brilliant and has a strong bi-partisan base. He's responsible for job growth, economic growth, balancing the budget, and getting more Hoosiers affordable health care and work.

    Well, I am sick of the race card being used! We need to elect someone who has actually accomplished something...not voted present...oh yeah not vote for someone who looks good. Give 50 years back to McCain and he would look a lot better than Obama. It is SO stupid.Women earned the right to vote 50 years...yes 50 years after an African-American MAN! I think American needs to tell the race card players to give it a rest...the new kids in town are not going to put up with it! I think the minority has been the voice of the women. And yes, this is true...examples include telling Palin she can't handle being in the White House because she needs to take care of her kids or how much she spends on clothes...gee...Obama spends abouot 5-6K on one suit but that has never been brought up...maybe we should ask him how he got his house???

    As a resident on Indiana and not a troll, I'm not very surprised. Governor Daniels has done a good job and is pretty popular. Jill Long Thompson hasn't run a very good campaign and doesn't have near as much name recognition as Daniels. These and the general trend towards Republicans in Indiana have both helped Daniels in this election.
