Whatever the merits of Evan Bayh’s arguments (in an oped in Wednesday’s Times), given that he walked away from a winnable Senate seat and held on to a $10 million war chest that other Dems could have put to good use, I think what most Democrats would like from Evan Bayh right now is for him to shut up.
It’s really not about his analysis. He just walked off the field in the middle of the game. Who can respect that? He just has no standing to talk.
