68. That did not answer my question.
Edited on Fri Nov-02-07 01:35 PM by LVZ
Why would a "bland" Bayh appeal more than others in "non-bland" Nevada? How would he have more impact than someone like Bill Richardson or any of other candidates?

Short answer: he wouldn't.

Even so, Bayh would be a "safe" choice so that Hillary would not be upstaged - sort of like George Bush Sr's choice of Dan Quayle (also from Indiana), albeit with more intelligence.
