    Although I am overall happy with their decline, I remain glad that Donnally won IN-Sen and Loretta Sanchez remains one of my all time favorite Democrats. Not only did she TWICE defeat one of the most insane Republican right wingers EVER, but she was also known for some of the most suggestive Christmas cards of Congress. And when you read the book she co-wrote with her far more liberal sister, Linda Sanchez (and a ghost writer, I think) you understand her far better.

    Won't miss the likes of Heath Schuler, Leonard Boswell or Larry Kissell though I originally supported them because they were marginally better than Repubs. I also was an early supporter of Brad Ellsworth and not sure if I regret that or not. Again, he was better than his opposition, but not by much.

    Of course Harold Ford, jr. tried to come to my state and run against Senator Gillibrand. My mayor and the head of my local (Brooklyn) Democratic party (the now disgraced Vito Lopez) supported him. But he was slapped down really fast, much to the embarrassment of the likes of Vito Lopez.
