I wouldn't be all excited about all these Dems not running in 2010. It tells me there is something really bad happening and they don't want any part of it. So like the cowards they are, instead of standing with the people they are supposed to represent against their own party. They gather up all their perks and benefits and head for the hills. Of course, I have learned to expect this kind of scummy behavior from Democrats, it's who they are and what they do.
They are all losers this year. Dodd can't defend what he did so he is quitting so another Democrat can be named in his place. I just hope that the people of Conn. realize what is happening and don't let them get away with it.
I think this is a good start, and good news. Incumbents have a huge advantage in any election--why would a newbie of the same party have any better chance? And, if Boy is looking for more stalwart, corrupt Marxists to replace the likes of Dodd, where do you find that species? It can't get any worse than it is now
For the good of the party these bozos can't be reelected (even in their brain dead districts) so they bail.
