This will certainly make Obama's job more difficult going forward since his party, by almost any calculus, loses heft. For my own part, I'm delighted to see these characters go, especially Dodd, who has done enormous damage, especially over the last decade or so. My only hope, and one I give little chance of coming to pass, is that those select voters faced with finding replacements for the aforesaid, choose neither, when confronted with the next batch of eager, suit wearing, would be grifting enablers of the military complex and FIRE economy, aka The Democrats and The Republicans.

Rats Leaving a Sinking Ship?
One has to wonder if the announcement by Democratic Senators Dodd, Ritter, and Dorgan that they are going to retire instead of seeking re-election is a sign that the light (some say they see) coming from inside our dark economic tunnel isn't the end of the tunnel, but is, instead, the headlight of a large vehicle barreling down on the U.S. economy. In the meantime, an explanation for why these folks have decided to cease and desist may be as simple as the fact that all three Senators stand to make a pile by retiring.
