Granted i am sure you all know my political affiliations based on my ramblings, i was/am still shocked Senator Evan Bayh is not going to seek a third term. Being originally from Indiana i am very familiar with the politics of the area and specifically Bayh. He seems very level headed for a lib, but also beyond the aisle he in my opinion is quite capable of making smart life decisions. His decision to retire from office seems to be based on fairly solid facts most everyone can support, such as, “the current challenging environment” in Congress. Simply put, nothing can be agreed upon in both sides of the hill, nothing gets done because of the bipartisanship. I think it is a crock of shit, we need to be progressive, lets get one side of the asile to take charge and lead by example. Let the bigger man show his cards, Bayh changing the momentum could be the trigger for a new wave of political changes, potentially for the better.
