Dave Weigel is right, Evan Bayh is just god-awful and shouldn’t have any platform to talk about politics. The guy is an empty vessel who did nothing as a Senator and failed to live up to whatever bogus centrist values he talks about on TV. His decision to not run for office handed the GOP a seat and his rhetoric has never been back up by legislating. It’d be one thing if he was a conservative Democrat who legislated as such, but other than being a squeaky wheel he’s never been a problem on whipping votes for the administration’s agenda. I’m not complaining about that, as I expect him to vote with the caucus. It just reveals his weakness as a legislator, a cowardly man who will talk tough on TV to make Democrats look bad, but never own the votes he is actually (rightly) taking.
