    It's happened many a time before and it'll happen again. (McCain, for the record, is neither of those religions...) just defending my home state, I wish it went the other way, but I'm proud it even held out this long tonight.
    Incidentally, I think if McCain had picked Jindal as his running mate, it would have worked out better for him and probably the nation...

    Pathetic, considering how little the republican admin did for your state after Katrina. Just pathetic.

    I'll never understand why ANYone would vote for a republican after what they have done to this country, but most especially Louisiana. One can only shake their head – well, he doesn't a chance in hell, that's one good thing.

  10. Lost in Louisiana

    It is way to early to give up yet. Orleans, Jefferson and many other parishes that vote Democratic have not submitted the votes yet. Only 10% of the state is in.

    Bobby Jindal's supporters did that for the RNC. These folks was left out in the cold following Katrina. It's a shame the folks in Mississippi too felt that they should vote for the same ole Bush policy having been left out in the cold too. Race has definitely play in the south.

    CINDY MCCAIN NEEDS TO DO SOME SOCIAL WORK IN LOUISIANA BEFORE GOING TO VIETNAM. THAT'S THE LEAST SHE CAN DO.

    Most of you are hoping blindly for a change and are hoping for Obama to be the next president.
    Well, go celebrate and enjoy 'cos in the next year or two, I'll be very happy to see you people moaning and cursing.
    As Rich Little always says,
    You ask for it!!!

    I would prefer Lionel Richie to be the first black president of America. Not OBAMA!!!
    I just can't trust him at all.
    American voted him, out of frustration!
    We're gonna pay a very high price for that.
