Bye Bye Bayh

Evan Bayh, the two-term junior Senator from Indiana and a Democrat announced today he won’t seek a third term.Evan Bayh

I am amazed. Bayh is a whole lot smarter than I thought. In  announcing his decision, he said his true vocation is as an executive, like when he was governor of Indiana for two terms.

FOX News political analyst Brit Hume said this evening that he didn’t think Bayh was comfortable all of the Washington bullshit and was especially uncomfortable as a moderate in a party controlled by leftist radicals like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

And, like all Democrats – incumbents especially – he faced almost certain defeat this fall.

I suspect he’s harboring presidential ambitions – maybe not in 2012, but eventually.
