Evan Bayh learned early that liberalism and ambition don't always mix in a red state like Indiana. It was 30 years ago that Bayh, then a year-old law school student, helped run the re-election campaign of his father, Senator Birch Bayh. An unrepentant liberal with national aspirations he'd run for president inthe elder Bayh was targeted by a then-emerging network of "New Right" activists and fundraisers, who pilloried him as a big spender and slammed his support for abortion rights, gay rights and school busing.

There are two more legitimate, and related, concerns, that can be leveled against Bayh--that he voted for the Iraq war, and that his relative liberalism of the past few years isn't authentic though how important authenticity in policy views is is certainly open to debate.
