Hot Air has it that Evan Bayh is dropping out of the 2008 race. That is to infer that he was ever “in” the “race”.

FOX News:

Bayh made the decision despite having made several visits to test states like Iowa and New Hampshire, and raising millions of dollars toward a possible White House run.

Alternately, we could say “Bayh made the decision after making visits to test states and realizing nobody cared.”
