Senator Evan Bayh
Democratic Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana, who surprised everyone when he announced his retirement from the U.S. Senate on February 15, 2010, is the son of former Democratic Senator Birch Bayh of Indiana.  The elder Bayh served in the Indiana House of Representatives from 1954 to 1962, rising to Speaker of the House, then served in the U.S. Senate from 1963 to 1981. In 1976 he sought the Democratic presidential nomination, which went instead to Jimmy Carter. In 1980 he was defeated for re-election by Dan Quayle, who went on to become Vice-President of the United States. Five years later, his son Even Bayh was elected Secretary of State, after which he served two terms as Governor.  He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1998. When he announced that he would not seek re-election in 2010, he lambasted Congress for its strident partisanship and its fiscal irresponsibility.  Savvy commentators noted, however, the the younger Bayh had considered running for president in 2008, that he had been a top consideration to be Barak Obama's running mate, and that he had $13 million in his campaign fund.  So perhaps he's not really saying "Bayh-Bayh" at all.
