Another Democrat jumping ship?
Quote :
WASHINGTON – Rep. Patrick Kennedy's decision not to seek re-election will leave Washington without a Kennedy in political office for the first time in more than 60 years.

The Rhode Island Democrat's term ends early next year but he says in a television message viewed by The Associated Press on Thursday that his life is "taking a new direction" and he will not seek a ninth term. The video was provided to the AP by Kennedy's congressional office.

The funny thing is that Republicans are jumping ship at twice the rate for Democrats. More than 10% of House Repubs are heading for the exits compared to less than 5% of Democrats. Seems kind of odd for a party that claims they're going to win back the House,doesn't it?
