Bye Bayh

Heh. Sorry, I couldn't resist that one.

Evan Bayh is stepping aside in Indiana:
Sen. Evan Bayh is expected to announce Monday afternoon that he will not seek a third term in the Senate, a source close to the Indiana Democrat told CNN.

The senator has scheduled at 2 p.m. ET news conference in Indianapolis.

"After all these years, my passion for service to my fellow citizens is undiminished, but my desire to do so by serving in Congress has waned," Bayh will say, according to the senator's prepared remarks that began circulating after the news broke that he was retiring.
Despite having all of his 'ducks-in-a-row' for a campaign, Bayh is choosing the path of Chris Dodd. However, he would have faced a very difficult re-election bid had he decided to stick it out.
