More Dems Retire

Patrick Kennedy's decision to retire from Congress must be contagious. Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) is retiring; he left Democrats in a lurch by waiting to decide that he would not seek reelection until the day before the filing deadline.

Rumors abound of other impending retirements. Hot Air speculates that Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) is weighing her options, and Instapundit has an "impeccable source" who says that Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) will retire.

If this keeps up, Sen. Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's prospects to become majority leader look brighter. Of course, that assumes that Republicans don't blow races like the Kentucky Senate race.
