Check out this profile from Glenn Greenwald. My favorite part:
He is a loyal servant to the insurance and health care industries over his own constituents -- as his wife sits on the Boards of numerous health care giants, who, right when Bayh became a Senator, began paying her millions of dollars in cash and stock. And this Sermonizer of Personal Responsibility is the ultimate by-product of nepotism, following faithfully and effortlessly in the footsteps of his Daddy-Senator, whose seat he now occupies. The fact that he's a Democrat -- and was Obama's close-second choice for Vice President -- just underscores how bipartisan these afflictions are.
The rot just permeates the place. And there is no one -- not even our current president -- who aspires to join Congress or occupy the White House who isn't smeared to some degree in the excrement of corporate favor.
