#3 I'd sooner have seen him lose the election. This keeps the seat a D.

#5 A vain hope, I know, but it would be nice if he didn't commit catastrophic damage on the country before his term ends.

#6 Unfortunately, he's already committed catastrophic damage on the country. It'a also a vain hope that he will truly pay for that damage.

#10 Good bit of snark from Mickey Kaus:

Now Angelo Mozilo can safely title his autobiography "Dodd is My Co-Pirate."

#11 Nothing to be happy about. By bailing, he turns the candidacy over to a Dem who is more likely to win. This simply allows him to continue to misrepresent his constituents and not have to suffer for it. He'll then retire to is cottage in Ireland while escaping any investigation into his criminal activity. Disgusting.

#12 Flies? More like rats off the sinking ship.

In this case it hurts, because the GOP looked to steal this seat if Dodd were to have run. Instead we get another Harvard Grad Yale Law School hardcore lefty statist in the Old Boys club, where we will nto be able to pry him out until he dies or is caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

We need to repeal the 17th amendment, and put in term limits for the very existence of the republic.
