Link for 2/16 – Good for Bayh!
As you may have heard by now, Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana has announced he will not seek re-election to the US Senate…and it is hard to blame him. The climate in Washington is so partisan, so divided, that it is understandable people would be frustrated. I applaud Senator Bayh for making this tough decision and hopefully, as time goes on, bright and talented people will once again see Congress as a place where they can make a positive impact.
Now the question becomes whether the Democrats can hold on to this seat. It would seem likely that they can, but election season 2010 just got a little more interesting!
