    Hmmm. I wonder why that is. Maybe because he is, as Biden noted, "getting the living hell beat out of him."

    Good riddance to the piece of garbage. He was front and center in all this economic BS. And now helped ram the health care bill down our throats despite the majority's opposition to it.

    If he stuck around, he'd probably follow in the footsteps of his father. Best to step down before the hounds catch up to him.

    Good riddance. He was boob of a senator in my former state.

    Because a prominent and influential 5-term Senator is withdrawing from what had been projected as a very close Senate campaign.

    That's basically the definition of news.

    Senator Dodd was terrific Senator from my home state. He has done more for the State of Connecticut then any politician ever has. The fact that he is getting the tar beaten out of him, just shows the vitriol that this country holds for the people in Washington who try to get things done.

    Senator Dodd helped to build the Connecticut public school system to one of the best in the country (if not the best). He worked hard in making sure that firefighters and police officers are paid what these brave men and women are worth. He was a tireless fighter for those who have no voice, the children, and worked with Senator Kennedy and Senator Hatch to pass health care legislation aimed at making sure that children get the health services they need.

    Senator Dodd is not a piece of garbage as someone put it. Sure he can take is blame in the mess we are in right now, but I ask you to not find fault in any of our elected officials we are not responsible. Let us not forget that President Bush presided over the beginning of this mess.

    Dodd was part of the biggest problem, entrenched big government liberal politics.
