I know Indiana went for BO in 2008...an anomaly.....it is a red state, and they’re losing Evan....this could turn the Senate seat there back to a Republican!!!

Thank you Zero, Reid and Pelosi. You exposed the whole fallacy of the “conservative” Democrat.

Well I knew Dan Coats would be a very good candidate, but I didn't think he'd be that good a candidate so quickly!

The sad thing might be these retiring rats could be now willing to fall on swords with extremely UNPOPULAR votes.

You’d think a Republican would have a very good chance at taking that seat.

Another ‘Rat deserts a sinking ship.

He and the others have Obama and his stubborn insistence on pushing his radical agenda to thank for their forced retirement.

If they can get a Rat on the ballot it will probably be a sacrificial Rat.

Great point. Hopefully the GOP can hold the line in the Senate and let the Democrats shoot themselves in the circular firing squad.

Don’t rain on the parade. These schmucks would have voted with Obo regardless. Bayh knew he would lose and didn’t want the humiliation. He can always ride to the rescue during a more socialistic election year.

Their internal polling must be held very secretly and must be off the charts against any Dem voting like Pelosi, especially in the conservative Midwest like Indiana.

The other thread (now pulled) claimed that Bayh stated that Republican Opposition was too much to overcome.

If they retire, then they can stay in Washington as lobbyist. If not, and they lose... They are done. Thus, why we see so many senators leaving.

Point of view from Kentucky (just south of Indiana):

“.....it [Indiana] is a red state, and they’re losing Evan....this could turn the Senate seat there back to a Republican!!!”

You are CORRECT on BOTH counts! Yippee!

What the commentator said regarding the retirement was that Bayh’s polling numbers were poor no matter which Republican opponent they would run against him. Even much lesser known Republicans, even UNKNOWN Republican candidates, polled better!

But...but...but...a KOS poll just a few days ago said Bayh was way, way ahead:
WASHINGTON – More than half of all Hoosiers would vote for Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., if Republican Dan Coats were on the ballot against him, a poll released Thursday says.

The poll, taken as Coats was exploring a Senate campaign but before he had announced his candidacy, was conducted by Daily Kos/Research 2000 this week . . .

I'd rather the Rat thugs stayed in office. This is part of a systematic Democrat effort to run "blue dog" candidates who'll lie about how fiscally conservative they are, thus making them harder to defeat.
