Frank & Nelson Just the Tip of the Iceberg

PJ Media notes that there are 9 high-seniority (D) congresscritters taking 'retirement'.

Kyle Kondik, House race editor at the Center of Politics at the University of Virginia, tells PJ Media: “It’s no fun to be in the minority in the House.” He noted that the retirement of veteran Democrats in safe seats is an admission the House will not return to Democratic hands in 2012: “If you read between the lines, I think you can say that if they were hoping to get their committee chairmanships they would be back. They really don’t see the prospects being very good for taking the House back.

It's also possible that the (D)s will not run the Senate.
