Indiana Blue?

I am not really sure how I feel about this. On one hand the idea of putting a very conservative democrat with Obamallama would have its benefits if the unthinkable happens and our country elects a socialist. The idea of having Bayh waiting in the wings and giving Obamallama advise gives me some comfort and hope. On the other hand, having Bayh as his running mate might actually be what Obama needs to get elected. It would bring in the more conservative base and possibly even turn Indiana blue! I have always been so proud of living in a red state, but Hoosiers really have it bad for Bayh. I guess it is a good thing that this is not up to me, I don't know which scarier, Obama with Bayh, or without.

Evan's pretty good, but I think if the republicans had run an actual candidate against him in his first bid for the Senate, instead of Paul Helmke (freakin' NRA F-rated Paul Helmke!) he probably wouldn't be in the Senate now. But I'd rather have Bayh as president that someone like Bloomburg or Guiliani. Maybe McCain should ask him to be his VP?

Well that would probably make the Republican ticket more conservative.

It would certainly improve the NRA rating of the ticket.
