  •  Mid-pack depends on what you do with it (2+ / 0-)

    I'm guessing Schumer was mid-pack during his first stint as DSCC chair.  The turnover does seem bizarrely high, but also seems to speeding up if you look at upcoming elections in 2014 and 2016.

    In other fun facts, Mark pryor is the 12th youngest (or 88th oldest) Senator but ranks 40th in Seniority.

    •  I mean mid-pack and non-leadership (1+ / 0-)

      There are chairs at 48 and 50 in seniority (Sanders and Casey), and then all others are 33 or above.  You need about 10-12 years for any chairmanship and then another chunk for a top committee.
