Every 14 or 16 years we seem to have to relearn this lesson. I do have a sense of deja vu, and the movie doesn't have a happy ending.--Sen. Evan Bayh
Back in 2006, I learned from GOP campaign operatives in D.C. that the presidential candidate they feared the most was not Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or John Edwards. No, it was Evan Bayh, a moderate, well-spoken, and good-looking Democrat, who, unlike JFK, was able to consistently win in the red state of Indiana.
This was most surprising to me. I'm staying tuned.
