Or at least one less dinosaur. Makes me nauseous when I see some career politician (either side of the aisle) being wheeled into one of the chambers in a wheel chair or on gurney as if their elected office was for life. At least Lautenberg's getting out before he gets to that point.

Agreed I think if they put term limits on everyone in the house and senate then maybe we would get some fresh ideas for a change instead of the stale ones we always seem to get. I don't see much chance of that though

No chance; the incumbent candidates who make the rules always have a big leg-up on challengers.

Mike - I think your other guy, Menendez might be in a little trouble. First it was the Dominican hookers - they later recanted. Isn't that amazing. I wonder how much money it takes to get a Dominican hooker to recant her story?

Now he's being investigated for his financial relationship with a Florida businessman.
