Kerry weighs in on DNC pick, putting down marker for '08
By Hans Nichols 
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) is vetting the leading candidates to be the next Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman, and asking them to remain neutral in the presidential selection process in 2008. It is the latest indication that Kerry is putting down markers to run again for the party’s presidential nomination in 2008.
His outreach to DNC candidates also marks his return to the fray after Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack, that candidate he was backing for chairman, ruled himself out of contention in November. The DNC contest is exposing the presidential ambitions of a number of Democratic politicians. In addition to Kerry, other potential 2008 presidential candidates have also contacted — or been contacted by — the several DNC aspirants, providing an early list of who is sending clear signals within the party that they will run for the Democratic nomination.

Over the past six weeks, Sen. Evan Bayh (Ind.), Sen. Hillary Clinton (N.Y,), New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Virginia Gov. Mark Warner and Kerry have been in touch with former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb and former Michigan Gov. James Blanchard, said Webb and Blanchard — the two DNC candidates who agreed to speak on the record on this issue. Those are the same names that several other DNC candidates, or their campaigns, have privately said they contacted.
Former Democratic vice-presidential candidate John Edwards (D-N.C.) has had limited contact with the DNC field, several campaigns said...

Its gonna be a tuff decision for me in 2008 if both Bayh and Warner both decide to run.  Id probably side with Bayh because of his experience.  Two term Governor and two term Senator in won of the most conservative states in the nation sounds like a winner to me.

True but Governor is an executive position, and they seem to have a better time getting elected historically. They seem less connected to Washington & more so to their home states. Besides as spokesperson for the national party Bayh will have to be at least somewhat of a different candidate than he probably was for senate, and if fell behind in the polls in Indiana that would be embarassing.

Bayh was a governor for two terms and then a senator for two terms.

Virginia is sufficiently close that a popular Virginian should be able to take it. Indiana isn't. 13 EVs is quite a lot you know...

I think that Indiana could very much go Bayh.  He is approved of in the state to a sufficient extent to beat a semi-popular Republican.
