That should make the Republicans smile. This will be an easy pick up for them next year.
Yes it will.
Why couldn't he focus on that before? Does he seriously think he's gonna' have more influence outside Congress?
Translation: "I know I'm not gonna' get re-elected so I won't even bother running again".
This is like Major League managers and coaches of terrible teams quitting to "spend more time with their families".
If he's a lobbyist sure. The puppetmaster holds more power then the puppet.
As for Conrad, I'm sure he's getting out while the getting is good.
I wonder what that means for his Health Care Repeal Vote?
Absolutely nothing. Only 20% of Americans want the bill completely repealed and replaced with nothing anyway.
If he plans to vote FOR the repeal, he can figure he will not get any help from the DNC and thus his plans to retire. On the other hand, if he votes AGAINST the repeal, he would lose the election, anyway. Is he considered a moderate Democrat? ( I am ignoring the 20% comment. I believe that is innacurate)
He's from North Dakota, of course he's a moderate Democrat. He has sided with the GOP on several issues, including healthcare a bit.
As for the 20% part of my comment, that is from Rasmussen which is typically a Conservative leaning poll.
Wrong, wrong, wrong, he and Lieberman are protecting their pensions. Did you think that they would kick the spending habit once they were out of Congress? A democrat trying to kick the spending habit is like a junkie trying to kick a drug habit.
