Hoosiers only!
So-o, Donnelly has a chance! Where should we work, and where should we go? My iimpression is that Obama is going to win, so we need to look local? I'm mobile, ready for GOTV, I've worked in the most ...

Plea from a Red-State Dem (IN)
Really, I don't know what the deal is w/ you coastal Dems. Frankly, I'm a bit tiffed. Did you not see how we won states like IN, or are going to win VA? What precisely did you think ... that we ...

We LOST Indiana - I'm "trusted" ?
We lost the fight in Indiana. Mitch-the-jerk signed the "right to be impoverished" law today. I just don't know what else to say, except that I'm SO SORRY. I just got an email in my box saying that I'

Confront Ron Paul Supporters
As a "left for dead" Indiana Democrat, I'd like to encourage all Kos readers in red states to engage all Ron Paul supporters about the following facts. #1 when the Paul campaign began, it was all ...

Mindless Indiana Dem venting, 1980 redux
This is *NOT* an intelligent blog. I'm just venting, as an Indiana Dem. Every time I watch Rach talk about abortion, I want to scream. It's astonishing. Planned Parenthood is facing such unreal ...

Open Reply to a nice person
TYVM for your very nice reply. Frankly, I think there was a simple misunderstanding - when I was quoted as saying that I "reconsidered" ... that referred to Hillary vs. Barack. That's all it was. I ...

Naturally, we in IN are given up for dead
The sad fact is that Indiana is right next to Illinois. Anyone who knows the history of this state can recall that in the 30s it was run by the KKK. Frankly, we're fed up. We know there are ...

CNN, other media fall 4 'crazy person' sham
This looks like a labor negotiation. There is, as always, a "crazy person" on the other side. This time, the "person" is in fact a large group of tea party Repubs. Obviously the markets would be ...

Repubs have done it :)
In a previous diary, I've expressed admiration for JFK, during the steel crisis. Some have argued that any potential threat or actual invocation of 14A Sec. 4, cannot be justified w/o Sec. 5 (i.e. ...

Steel the Bipartisan Mills and Sail Away, Mr. Pres.
Does anyone remember JFK and the Steel Crisis? [ ] I'll get back to that in a moment, but let's start w/ the present budget issues. Oh wait. ...

No way we won this big
We had no hope here in IN, we knocked till we dropped. We never had any clue that we would be "imp" in the primary let alone the gen'l.

Want to work in OK?
Shoot, I'm not sure I want to work there, either! But I live in Indiana, and am known as The Mad Canvasser of Indiana. I've knocked 15K doors in this state, and I want to make sure that we get BLUE, ...

This diary is dedicated to my pal, NWTerriD, and all the Kossacks who supported the Obama campaign during the difficult times of the Indiana primary (and the "second coming of Rev. Wright.) It doesn'...

Yeah, I know. The concept of Blue Indiana is hard to reach. I never thought it would occur, when I blind knocked, back in June. That said, one shouldn't give up on the idea. After all, it ...

What you can do (esp. red state Dems)
As The Mad Canvasser of Indiana, I feel slightly privileged to make some humble sugg.s. After all, everyone thought I was crazy when I started blind-knocking back in early June w/ a box of ...

Red State Dems ... Unite! (1936)
Here in Indiana, we're still waking up. In more senses than one. But for the one thing, we're still catching up on sleep. I'd like to congratulate my pals in MO and NC, for the ...

Indiana Democrats will Survive
I've only lived in Indiana for 15 years, and I don't like it much. But I've become a die-hard Indiana Democrat, so I fear the potential of getting kicked in the butt again. Please view ...

OBAMAniac ... or DEMOCRAT?
After approx 15K doors (including blinds, and the primary), I'll be hanging up my canvassing shoes tomorrow - at least until '10. (To be fair: my third pair of sneakers, is being "hung up."

Indiana - PPP and Powell (ground view)
Kossacks in general seem to have a lot more time than Yours Truly - AKA The Mad Canvasser - to dissect polls. As we approach the last few days of canvassing and persuasion calling here in ...

Dear Chicago, Don't forget us Hoosiers
The evidence suggests that I've knocked more doors in IN, than any other vol. canvasser (est. 15K incl'g the primary, and blinds). I was knocking doors for Obama with a box of Philly speeches ...

An IN canvasser's ground report
As IN's self-described "mad canvasser" ... this is my assessment, mind you - from the ground. Everyone keeps saying "and even (maybe) IN" ... IDK if I agree w/ that.

You've seen the email from Lilly West, our DFD in Indiana. I'm here to tell you, just how important F2F contacts are. Surely your intuition must support this - if you can tell your ...

An Indiana Obama Canvasser's Oath
My wife is freaking out about the recent polls. Many of you might be feeling the same way, quite understandably. To see this as a crisis is to overlook the fact that it's an opportunity.
