    Just part of the demonrat strategy for 2010. Dodd, along with Dorgan of N. Dakota have been "persuaded" to retire (lots of large dollar incentives I am sure) because they are in electoral trouble in their home states and likely to lose to a GOP challenger. So the Dem party gets them to "retire" which lets the dems run another candidate, who can then claim to be a "conservative, blue dog dem" and maybe keep the seat for the dems that way. Think there will be a few more like this in the next few weeks. This strategy, along with their attempt to insert "universal registration" into the health care reform package would (will?) give them an enormous advantage at the polls they think, and along with a little help from ACORN and its many non-existent voters, should see them keep control of the senate. This is why, in my opinion, they do not really care about polls on health care reform, or tea parties, and any other citizen input on their actions. They are convinced they can cheat the system enough to keep power now, no matter what they do to the country.

    A lot more will retire before the elections. He's just the first rat to jump ship.

    Several posters have hinted at the REAL questions concerning the announced retirements of Dodd, Dorgan, and several other liberal dems that are bailing out.

    What were they offered to retire and by whom??

    I believe they decided (with urging) to retire because they were such despicable slimeball shitbags they could never get re-elected, so the powers that be want a more electable candidate in their place.

    Dodd will be rewarded for "taking one for the regime" by being given the Treasury Secretary position when it is soon vacated unwillingly by 'turbo tax Timmy'.

    Don't hold back there buddy....tell us how you really feel..!!!
    Actually...I agree totally. These retirements are all about the Democrat party's strategy to get a "better" ( read: more electable) candidate than their own incumbent. The good news we can take away from this is that even the Democrat strategists have begun to figure out that there's a LOT of angst out here in the ignorant population...causing them to believe that a new candidate would be better than one of their own with years of experience ansd seniority..

    To more effectively deliver the message...perhaps some stalwart citizens will bring a full size guillotine on a trailer to the next "Tea-Party" rally and park it next to the Senate Office Building...
