Interesting little note from Investing Businessweek:
This person is connected to 76 board members in 10 different organizations across 13 different industries.
Um, that sort of gives me the impression that you don't want to mess with Susan Bayh.
And the recent Citizens United decision may have played a large role in hubby Evan Bayh's decision not to run for re-election as U.S. Senator from Indiana. With all that corporate clout behind them, he could be handed the U.S. presidency in 2016, if not 2012, nice comeback for someone who might be tiffed because he wasn't Obama'a VP choice in 2008.
