Change We Can Believe In
Rep. Bill Delahunt (D., Mass.) will become the 18th Democrat to retire in advance of November elections.
"It's got nothing to do with politics," Delahunt told the Boston Globe. "Life is about change. I think it's healthy. It's time."

But there's 20 Republicans retiring:
2. Good. Clean the whole bunch out and start fresh!
Of the 16 Dems listed, 11 are NOT seeking another office - of the 20 republicans, only 7 are NOT seeking another office.
In other words 2/3 of the Dems are flat out retiring while only about 1/3 of the Republicans are.
eyago: If you want to play stupid number games, at least learn to count.
The number of Democrats not seeking another office in the Wikipedia list is 10 not 11. That's a ratio of 10:7 -- oddly enough, just about the same as the ratio of Democrats to Republicans in the House.
Good, get out, Delahunt. This Congress is scared as hell. Looks like they have convinced Him to try KSM in a military court after all.
I'm getting whiplash watching this dufus govern. No wonder business' doesn't know how to plan.
Let Adam Smith be the next. At least he can hide behind his medical condition.
He should get well before he destroys the health care system.
"It's got nothing to do with politics,"
Of course it does, at least he didn't mock us by using the tired line of saying he's doing it to spend more time with his family.
8. Would'nt it be nice if Patty Murray and Maria Cant bookeep too well didthe same thing and voluntarily retired. Oh well nice though!
