Bayh's gamble

If Hillary Clinton loses Indiana, Will Evan Bayh also be a casualty? The Politico explores the issue:

Evan Bayh, the Indiana junior senator who has national political aspirations of his own, also stands to see his stature rise or fall depending on the outcome. As the state's most popular Democrat and a vigorous Clinton supporter, Bayh's ability to deliver Indiana will be closely scrutinized as a test of his clout and could go a long way toward burnishing his credentials for a spot on a possible Clinton-led presidential ticket.

"Closely scrutinized as a test ... toward burnishing his credentials" for a spot on the ticket? If Clinton loses Indiana, there ain't gonna be a ticket. Let's not overthink this thing.
