    Conrad leads retiree class of 2012 Democrats in Senate

    It begins.

    It didnít take long for the midterm election to have an impact on the 23 Democrats who must defend their seats in 2012. One of them, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, will announce his retirement today rather than fight for another term. Conrad will retire from the Senate at the relatively young age of 64

    She's retiring as well.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Twenty three (oops make that twenty one) Democratic senators are up for reelection in 2012. They make me think of a group of chickens walking into a KFC shop and asking what's for lunch.

    Yeah, Ted Kennedy's seat shows that the DNC has a strangle hold on New England Senate Seats...
