You appear to be another Hoosier sucked in by Evan Bayh. He has been hand groomed by his father [former Senator Birch Bayh] for decades for a run for the presidency. Evan is just as liberal as his old man [which is pretty left wing], but he's more discrete about it. The only saving part of this is that Evan is considerably duller than Al Gore.

Given the virulent anti-war sentiments of the majority of the Democratic party faithful, what does Bayh hope to gain by pretending to support the President?

I dislike some of the things Sen. Bayh stands for on domestic politics (the filibuster of judicial nominees) and I detest his reaction to the rape accusation against Pres. Clinton.

But on foreign policy, he's consistently been better than others. For example, he co-sposored the bill in the Senate that gave the President new authority to attack Saddam. It pains me to say something nice about a Democrat, but Sen. Bayh has earned a bit of my grudging respect for the way he's handled this Iraq matter and the war on terrorism -- he's acting like a grown up on this part of the job.

He's a mixed bag. I won't vote for him, but I don't dislike his policies as much as I dislike other Senate Democrats (Schumer, Dodd, Boxer, Murray, Leahy, etc, etc).

Sorry to disagree with you, but that's not possible.
