America votes for 44th President

November 04, 2008
America is just hours away from knowing who will be the country's new President.

Americans turned up in record numbers at polling stations across the country to cast their votes in the polls that pitted Democrat frontrunner Barack Obama against his Republican opponent John McCain, who is hoping for a surprise D-Day victory.

The so-called red state of Indiana is critical for both Obama and McCain. It is critical for McCain to hold on to this Mid-Western State as the Illinois senator has come within knocking distance of this state that borders yet another important Mid-Western state of Ohio.
