    So your point seems to be that Democrats are bailing out? How do you respond to the fact that more Republicans are retiring than Democrats?

    The Fix - Republican retirements mount in House

    Republican retirements mount in House
    The decision by South Carolina Rep. Henry Brown to retire brings Republican retirements to 14, a number that, if it continues to rise in the coming months, could curtail the expected GOP gains in the House in November.

    While much of the focus for the last month (or so) has been on Democrats' retirement problems -- set off by a quartet of announcements in swing and Republican-leaning districts over the last month -- a broad look at the open seat playing field suggests more parity in terms of the two parties' opportunities and vulnerabilities than conventional wisdom suggests.

    Republicans currently carry 14 open seats while Democrats have 10
