Blood In The Water

Gosh it's only the first week of January.

Not standing for re-election:
Byron Dorgan
Chris Dodd (We are finally rid of one of the most corrupt politicians our nation's ever seen. Though now the Dems can run a young attractive candidate, so what was a likely GOP pick-up becomes tougher. Still, I feel a bit cleaner this morning, blood in the water notwithstanding). Update: it's official. No more waitress sandwiches.
Gov. Bill Ritter. His decision is very interesting.

Also resigning: GOP Florida party chairman Jim Greer, staunch ally of Gov. Crist. Seems a short time ago Crist seemed unstoppable; now his conservative rival seems to have the momentum.
