Hi,
I have a column that is of type "timestamp" in format of 2010-09-04 22:24:19 .  I need to run a process where I check today's date against any records that have been created today already (marked by timestamp).  

So essentially if i do select curdate(); it'll give me back 2010-09-06.  I want to compare that to the timestamp to see if this is the same day (so ignore the hh:mm:ms).

I dont want to do substring(TS, 1,10 ) where I'll have 2010-09-04 and i'll be able to compare strings... I want to do a DATE comparison.

Is this possible somehow?

Thanks,

Try adding the following in where clause:
WHERE DATE(date_field) = CURDATE();

If you want a really simple solution then don't drop hh:mm:ms part, just use it with DATE_FORMATE function and put custom value for hh:mm:ss to define day range. see following example
SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE 
date_column > DATE_FORMAT(NOW(), '%Y-%m-%d 00:00:00') AND 
date_column < DATE_FORMAT(NOW(), '%Y-%m-%d 23:59:59');
