Ohioans still divided heading into inaguration

On Thursday, President George W. Bush will be sworn in for another term. Many political observers say that he has Ohio to thank for that. Certainly few other states got more attention leading up to the election than Ohio. The political divisions ran deep, and three months later, for many people, they still do.

Columbus resident Tamara Teal is a moderate Republican. She says she voted for President Bush because she felt the nation would be more secure with him in office. But she says she knows a lot of people disagreed with her.

Finding unity in a divided state was a topic on talk of the nation Wednesday afternoon. The National Public Radio program was broadcast live nationwide from the Fawcett Center on The Ohio State University campus.

President Bush will be inagurated at noon.
