Bayh says he won't support Roberts nomination (Maureen Groppe, 9/26/05, Indianapolis Star)

Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh said Friday he will vote against the nomination of Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to be the next chief justice of the United States because not enough is known about how Roberts will act. [...]

Bayh was the last Senate Democrat considering a 2008 presidential run to announce how he will vote.

Delaware Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. voted against Roberts and Wisconsin Sen. Russell D. Feingold voted for him when the Senate Judiciary Committee endorsed his nomination Thursday. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton announced her opposition after the committee vote and Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry has also said he’ll vote against Roberts when the full Senate takes up the nomination next week.
Women’s groups, which are influential in the Democratic primary process, are opposed to Roberts.

Mr. Bayh's father did so much damage to himself in his presidential bid that he ended up losing his Senate seat to that notorious moron Dan Quayle.

Moron Quayle is a fiction of the media. Why are you promoting it?

Because they believe it.

When is he up again? Or is his theory that he is going to quit the Senate to make his run for President before he runs for re-election, and the most important thing is dealing with the parties left-wing?

'10--Quayle ducked him last year.

oj. I don't understand your comment above.

Bayh is up again in 2010--they couldn't get Quayle to run against him last year so he won easily.

So it is suicide?

To prove his newfound leftie bona fides, will he permit photographs with Cindy Sheehan? Nothing less will satisfy the moonbats.

As an alternative, consider Cynthia McKinney. He needs to pander to the black vote, too.

What a moron.

The elder Bayh is one of the heads on the NRA wall, along with Tidings and Clark. We have a blank spot waiting for Schumer.
