If Evan Bayh doesn't run for president, he sure will have wasted a lot of time and effort. After schmoozing with Democrats in New Hampshire, he's now trying to gauge his appeal in Iowa. At least one writer picks him as the dark-horse candidate to take the Democratic nomination. (Love this line: "The only negative about him is that he seems to have a smirk on his face all the time." Don't people say that about George Bush, too?)
He's getting a lot of mentions in a lot of places (lots of good comments after this post, like, "I don't see him being able to convince the Dem base that he shares their bitterness"). It almost seems that if anybody can challenge Hillary Clinton's status as presumptive front-runner, it's Bayh. Wipe that smirk off your face, Mr. Bush.
