Hillary supporters from various states and Congress held a conference call this afternoon to talk about Sen. Hillary Clinton’s electibility.

Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Indiana) said that, in places like his red state, Hillary has the best chance among the Democratic candidates of winning the big dance.

“Moderate voters will look for strength and toughness,” he says, also noting that “experience and seasoning are important to not just elevate hope, but deliver on hope.”

When asked pointedly whether the assertion Hillary will be ready on day one means that others won’t, Bayh avoided the circular firing squad mentality and answered, “The decision is whether there is someone else better prepared to be commander-in-chief.”
