    Evan Bayh!

    Does this mean we're doing "Bayh for President" now too?

    •  Uhh.... (none)
      no.

    •  If Bayh Had Votes No On Iraq... (none)
      ...had opposed the Patriot Act, and done some other stuff, then maybe Bayh '08 would be in vogue.

      However, since he did none of those things, he's just a prick who got lucky and made the right decision this one time.

      Russ Feingold for President!

    •  Yeah, about that... (none)
      Maybe if he'd voted for it immediately (as Feingold did) instead of waiting until it was obviously going down to defeat, if he'd voted against the bankruptcy bill and the Iraq war....

      And for those that think Bayh can win a national election but Feingold can't... You're nuts. It could be argued either way, but Feingold has won by big margins in a swing state. He can certainly win a national election. Neither his Jewishness (which, btw, will help in FL) nor his divorcedness (sic) is disqualifying. He's Dean with a marginally better personality, without the baggage of being from a "liberal" New England state.
