Rumor: Voinovich May Not Run in 2010, Either

Allah's post is typically defeatist and depressive, which I think strikes precisely the right tone.

Jeb, Kit Bond, now Voinovich. For some odd reason Republicans are deciding 2010 isn't an appealing time to run. Candidate recruitment, which had been bad in recent years, is getting worse still.

The good news is that it opens the door for those "fresh faces" we'd all like to see. The bad news is that it's damn hard to get elected as a "fresh face."

Make sure you scan down to his final "Hmmmmm" link. Bond and Voinovich, who both backed the auto bailout, appear vulnerable.

I believe that the numbers are dictating our strategy to us. It's what most Republicans believe anyway -- and if you can't get elected any other way, hey, why not try standing on principle and see how that goes?

Positive Spin? Kapsar Hauser--

Wow! It's just like 2004 when all the Democrats were retiring because they were clearly out of power forever.

Very true. Things change fast. Past performance is not indicative of future results, objects may be closer than they appear, etc.
