Bayh Passes on Re-election

In the parlance of our times, whuh whoa Shaggy: Senator Evan Bayh, the two-term Democrat from Indiana, will not seek a third-term this year.  Which makes yet another Democratic seat likely to swing back to the Republicans.

“Mr. Bayh had been growing increasingly discontent with the Senate, an associate said, and told some advisers in 2006, when he briefly explored a presidential bid, that he did not know whether he would seek re-election to the Senate. He was seen by some fellow Democrats as someone who was not very active in the Senate on a daily basis. He often popped in for votes and was quickly gone, and was known to make time for the school and sports events of his children.”
