Unless this is one final head-fake, it looks like Obama's picking Indiana Gov. Evan Bayh as his running mate.

Impressive: A Sister Souljah move, dissing the "progressive netroots community"? As Allahpundit notes:
The nutroots threw a tantrum last week over Bayh being on the shortlist, with lefty blogger Steve Clemons claiming a few days ago that he’d been summarily dropped by the campaign in response. It’s worth hoping this rumor’s true just to hear them squeal.
Yeah, and watch the PUMAs burn when St. Hopey disses Hillary by picking some vanilla-bland Midwest corporate white dude. Anarchy in Denver!

  1. I'm not sure how much Bayh will even help. He was very moderate when he was in Indiana as the Governor, but it didn't take him long to find his leftist side once he started drinking from the Potomac. They'll say he has high approval numbers with Hoosiers, but believe me, he's lost a lot of support in this state.

    So, if they're counting on Bayh to deliver Indiana, they'll probably just lose the state anyway in dramatic fashion, and would have pissed-off all those leftists who hate him, for nothing.

    That's my two-cents anyway.
