The Indiana senator is viewed as a moderate who would counter Obamaâ??s liberal voting record and be a draw for Midwestern voters.
But one of the downsides to a Bayh candidacy is his wife, Susan, who sits on a number of corporate boards.
Locally, she is a director at Emmis Communications, which has seen a prominent shareholder call for her resignation over the companyâ??s stock price, and WellPoint, which is a reviled health insurer.
Obamaâ??s campaign is reportedly worried about McCain making hay out of her corporate connections. (Imagine the ads: â??Evan Bayhâ??s wife helped deny insurance to people who couldnâ??t afford health care.â??)
What do you think? Should her corporate ties be enough for Obama to overlook her husband?
