Edit - It does not look like she would be a credible candidate.
Last month, the unhappy unions tried to oust Dan Parker as state chairman of the Indiana Dems, a move seen by many as a shot across the bow against Evan Bayh (the figurehead who keeps giving his blessing to Parker). Those same unhappy unions were some of JLT’s biggest supporters last year, when the Parker-led state party couldn’t care less about her. We think this has legs, but we’ll remain skeptical (and hopeful) until something more concrete materializes.
Yesterday, Evan Bayh broke with his party on a vote besides the budget: He was one of nine Democrats to support the Kyl-Lincoln estate tax bill reducing the estate tax on rich families at a cost of $250 billion over 10 years. The tax change is not paid for, and so that $250 billion is borrowed.
In his statement, Bayh says that "the money we will borrow will fund important priorities like affordable health care, energy independence, job creation, and education improvements, rather than tax cuts for the most affluent." On first read, I assumed he was paying a compliment to the priorities of the budget. Now I realize he was explaining the reason for his opposition.
Bayh and his wife are part of the Versailles kleptocracy.
