UPDATE: Fox News officially announced on Monday afternoon that former Democratic Senator Evan Bayh is becoming a contributor to the network.

Michael Clemente, the network's senior vice president for news, announced the move in a statement. He said that “Senator Bayh’s decades of experience in the political arena and his participation in key decisions in Washington will lend a valuable point of view to the entire Fox News lineup.”

“I’m pleased to offer analysis of public policy and politics to the millions of Americans who get their news from Fox,” Bayh said in the statement.

I always like Bayh. In fact he was my early preference for president in the 2008 campaign. He is a level headed guy with a great resume. Unfortunately, zero charisma. He never moved the needle in the polls and got out early.

I was very disappointed that he retired in the Senate last year. He knew he was handing the seat to the dark side. Things got hot and he left the kitchen posthaste.

So - hopefully he can be a voice of reason on a network that typically eschews such talk.
