Obama/Bayh 08 ?

Bill Browning on Bilerico: Obama will name Bayh his VP Choice on Wednesday

More over on Queerty

I wasn't thrilled about Bayh, but he may be a good choice:
He's moderate/liberal on social issues (89% HRC rating,"pro-gay", opposed the anti-gay Federal Marriage Amendment, supported adding Sexual Orientation to Hate Crimes), more mixed on Abortion rights.
He's more moderate/conservative on economic issues (fiscal conservative)

See Evan Bayh on the Issues

He may help Obama win Indiana and some other swing states, and calm some nervous white folks.
