Bayh the Moderate?


One of my Senators — Senator Evan Bayh — is often referred to as a “moderate”, “centrist” Democrat. Certainly, he likes to portray himself — particularly when running in Indiana — as such a Democrat. I hope Hoosiers will remember that Senator Bayh voted against his fellow Hoosier, Chief Justice John Roberts, and that he not only voted against Justice Alito, but in favor of a filibuster.
