54. In the past three years... Evan has been increasingly hard to

During the war buildup - Lugar was critical (worked on an amendment to IWR... and while in the end supporting the war, was very vocal about concerns pre-invasion about post war plans (and the apparent lack of them) )... while Bayh was supportive (to the point not just of voting for IWR - but doing the Rose Garden speech - which ended the chances of the Biden-Lugar (and other) negotiations for various proposed amendments.)

He has been seen on the air - post Kay report - denying Kay's response (no WMDs now, probably no WMDs pre-invastion)... affirming that we WILL find them.

However, though he has pharma ties (Lilly is in his back yard, so to speak), he stood with the party in opposition to the medicare bill; AND he held firm in opposition to the energy bill. So just when it looks as though he might be going the way of Zell... he holds firm.

That said, I would never use Lugar as a bellweather for Bayh.
