Fox News reports:
As top Dems abandon their posts, Republicans are cautiously upbeat about chances of taking Senate seats. Sen. Chris Dodd, who has represented Connecticut for more than three decades in Congress, announced Wednesday that he will not run for re-election in November.
Dodd joined two other prominent Democrats Wednesday in ditching plans to run for office in the fall.
So – should we be cheering?
Not necessarily. This news worries me.
The Democrats today are a new political beast willing to commit political suicide over the last year to jam their Progressive agenda down
This is not necessarily good news for Republicans.
I would rather face a dangerous WOUNDED beast than a healthy unknown one - one that will try to spoof Independents again with words like moderate or conservative Democrat. And that’s what Republican contenders could very well be facing in November.
We know now, watching the arrogance of ALL Democrats in Congress, that there is no such thing as a moderate or conservative Democrat. But the new beasts running in 2010 will try to pull the wool over the voter’s eyes once again.
I hate to be a party pooper but don't pop the Champagne Corks Yet on the news that prominent Democrats are dropping like flies.
