Bayh: Democrats must be firm on national security debate

"You don't have to choose one or the other. You can have both."

"We’re part of a filtering system to weed out bad candidates," said Peter Somssich of the Portsmouth Democrats.
"I hope I don’t get weeded," Bayh responded. "Pruned a little, but not weeded."
