Granted i am sure you all know my political affiliations based on my ramblings, i was/am still shocked Senator Evan Bayh is not going to seek a third term. Being originally from Indiana i am very familiar with the politics of the area and specifically Bayh. He seems very level headed for a lib, but also beyond the aisle he in my opinion is quite capable of making smart life decisions. His decision to retire from office seems to be based on fairly solid facts most everyone can support, such as, "the current challenging environment" in Congress. Simply put, nothing can be agreed upon in both sides of the hill, nothing gets done because of the bipartisanship. I think it is a crock of shit, we need to be progressive, lets get one side of the asile to take charge and lead by example. Let the bigger man show his cards, Bayh changing the momentum could be the trigger for a new wave of political changes, potentially for the better.

The potential replacements the Democrats have lined up are not all that stellar, from my hometown you have, Rep. Brad Ellsworth D. 8th district (very GREEN and not experienced), but better than Rep. John Hostettler . All the ass dragger's in seats who do nothing but try to figure out ways they can secure their seats and pay checks need to go buh-BAYH and make way for those individuals who really want to right this ship. I look at Bayh's move as a positive for the stock market long term, not good short term.You might ask why not good short term?
Well, like i have said in the past any political uncertainty is never good for the markets, though the biggest problem is the GOP will let the house burn down around them. They will not vote yes on anymore spending and they sure as hell will not be pulling another AIG or C. GOP has a more, let the markets run their course naturally kind of mentality. Which i am all for. Larry Kudlow say's it best, "Free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity!"
