Democrats know the people are pissed & now are pulling the rip cord &
jumping clear after doing the dirty work. They know what they are
doing is wrong & they know the people do not want this.
Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Connecticut, plans to announce his retirement.
Mind over matter, if you don't mind, it don't matter.
Actually, it was probably the Democratic Establishment that got rid of Dodd. Dodd was becoming such a liability that there was a growing possibility that the Republicans may well have captured the seat. By stepping aside, pushed, whatever, he probably saved the seat for the Democrats. It's certainly not a give-me any more, but best guess is that even a mediocre Democratic candidate can retain the seat for the Democrats. No matter what, resources (i.e money) are going to have to be diverted into a race that no one expected to be at all competitive..
Charlie Rangel is probably next. (And dammit, I liked Charlie. I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher, but he certainly is an entertaining character.)
