From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney

(CNN) – Two days after Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh shocked fellow Democrats with his decision not to run for reelection, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine pledged that the party will field a top-flight candidate to defend the seat.

"We're going to have a marquee candidate in Indiana," Kaine told CNN's Kiran Chetry on American Morning on Wednesday. "There isn't any reason for Democrats to walk around with sad faces."

    I think it may be good that Bayh is out. Maybe now we can elect a REAL Democrat to his seat.

    Like the idea, not just because of the $$$ but it is really time for us to take care of our own instead of putting others first.

    Since the US has sent over 500 million dollars to countries in the middle east to help their citizens in times of crisis, why aren't the citizens of the US receiving the same? Give 1 million dollars to each citizen in the US! This will save people from losing their homes, their families and stimulate the economy. US citizens would spend, save, start small business' and create economic stimulis where it is needed, right here in our beloved USA. Having compassion for foreign countries is a good thing. However, when you neglect the very people that make up the United States of America the suffering continues and the losses continue. Thank you for listening.
