"Senator, how about those Red Sox?"

I was taking photos at a press conference in the Capitol Building this morning. Senator Evan Bayh (D-Indiana) held the conference in support of a bill proposal that would increase the profitability of flu and other vaccine's production among domestic and Canadian pharmaceutical companies. Due to the recent shortage Sen. Bayh and others on the Hill have opted to pass on their "congressional" flu shot. The plan is essentially supposed to prevent vaccine shortages in the United States and decrease our reliance on foreign pharmaceutical companies. Sounds like politics to me. What I really wondered was if the senator from Indiana has been watching the Red Sox and Yankees the last few days.
