Senator Evan Bayh faces a touch decision on John Roberts.
For Evan Bayh, this is more complicated than just figuring out whether John Roberts will be an effective chief justice. He is also balancing home state concerns and presidential ambition.Evan, as it was said on the big screen in 1977, "you must do what you feel is right of course."
Indiana Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN) introduced Roberts to his Senate colleagues with an endorsement of the Roberts nomination. "Simply put, John Roberts is a brilliant lawyer and jurist with an extraordinary record of accomplishment and public service," said Lugar.
Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) spoke next but was careful to stay neutral. "As a fellow Hoosier I am proud that someone from our state would be so talented and so successful to be considered for a position on the highest court of our land," said Bayh.
Bayh is looking to run for president and Democratic primary voters will be watching his nomination vote closely.
Democrat Ann DeLaney says Bayh could vote against Roberts despite the latter’s Hoosier roots. "If he doesn't think it’s the right pick, of course he can. The fact that people read into the fact that he was introducing him...he's been saying for years that there isn't enough civility in politics in Washington and the fact that he was asked would guarantee that, but that does not guarantee his support."
The decision is made tougher by the fact that Roberts is now up for the top job on the Supreme Court. "Growing up I never imagined that I would be here in this historic room nominated to be the chief justice," said Roberts.
Republicans, meantime, are predicting that Bayh will eventually support Roberts and then oppose the person who is nominated to replace Sandra Day O'Connor.
"He can do this on this one and fight the fight on the next one and I think that's what he's all about," said Mike McDaniel, a Republican.
Consider that Bayh is trying to convince Democrats that he can win Republican crossover votes. A vote for Roberts might enhance that perception. Yet if he runs for president he must also attract Democratic primary voters who tend to be liberal. That may be the source of his indecision.
Attornies are still in dispute over the transportation documents.
