Sylvia A. Smith reports that Senator Evan Bayh is getting all his ducks in a row for a run for the White House in 2008.
Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., said Wednesday he’s laying the groundwork to make a decision about running for president in 2008.
“Am I doing the practical things that would allow me at some point to make that decision?” he said. “Yes, I’m doing the practical things to keep that open as an option.”
His statement – while not an announcement – is a more direct response to “Are you running for president?” than he has previously given. As recently as last month, his answer was that if he does his job, “the politics will take care of itself.”
