Bayh Not to Run

U.S. Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) has decided not to run for President in 2008. Because Bayh is a Democrat who has been able to be elected in a majority Republican state, many observers had considered him to be a candidate who could appeal to independent voters.

The decisions by Mark Warner and Bayh not to run in 2008 may signal that moderate Democrats realize they can not win their party's nomination at the national level. If so, that spells trouble for the Democrats at a time when they might be hoping to build on their 2006 congressional triumph.
