    They were not kicked out because of healthcare reform..... and, it was just two years ago the tide went the other way and people were writing the obit of the Republicans. Two years is a long time.... and if the Repubs think the '10 election was all about healthcare... well, that level of cluelessness translates to a short political career. (PS - check the trend lines in the relevant polls. It is rapidly becoming a non-issue.)

The Repubs actually have to to something over the next couple of years. Being the party of "no" can work in the minority, but now they have to actually stand for something. Given that Republicans haven't had an original piece of legislation in decades (maybe Medicare D), I really doubt that happens.
    If unemployment remains near 10%...

    If the housing slump hasn't turned around...

    If gas is over $4 a gallon....

    Obama will have a very hard time getting reelected.

    And all three are predicted by economists.

    Sen. Kent Conrad won?t seek reelection - David Catanese and Manu Raju - POLITICO.com

    the current chair of the budget committee has been senator from north dakota for 24 years

    a democrat creating an open seat in NORTH DAKOTA is quite a different matter from a senior senator in TEXAS resigning because she is worried about a primary challenge from her right

    conrad was the loudest and most leaderly voice upstairs AGAINST the public option, by the way

    his departure is not unexpected

    others known to be considering early retirement include jeff bingaman in new mexico (where susana martinez won the governorship, 54 to 46, to become the first female hispanic gub in us history, where republicans took 2 of the state's 3 congressional districts) and jim combat boots webb in virginia (where republicans stormed richmond by 18 in november of '09, where the gop gained three more house seats and came within a recount of ousting gerald connolly in the dc suburbs, where 8 of the 11 current congressmen wear red)

    fyi

    OOOOOooo…..I’m so sceered.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    By the time you really get scared it will be too late. Until something directly affects you, you ignore it.
