Side effect of Demplosion 2010...an extinct Blue Dog Coalition?

Do the Blue Dogs go the way of the Pink Floyd song?


First, the current roster of “Blue Dogs':
Jason Altmire (PA-4)
Mike Arcuri (NY-24)
Joe Baca (CA-43)
John Barrow (GA-12)
Robert Marion Berry (AR-1)
Sanford Bishop (GA-2)
Dan Boren (OK-2)
Leonard Boswell (IA-3)
Allen Boyd (FL-2)
Bobby Bright (AL-2)
Dennis Cardoza (CA-18 )
Chris Carney (PA-10)
Ben Chandler (KY-6)
Travis Childers (MS-1)
Jim Cooper (TN-5)
Jim Costa (CA-20)
Henry Cuellar (TX-28 )
Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-3)
Lincoln Davis (TN-4)
Joe Donnelly (IN-2)
Brad Ellsworth (IN-8 )
Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-8 )
Bart Gordon (TN-6)
Jane Harman (CA-36)
Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (SD-AL)
Baron Hill (IN-9),
Tim Holden (PA-17)
Frank Kratovil (MD-1)
Betsy Markey (CO-4)
Jim Marshall (GA-8 )
Jim Matheson (UT-2)
Mike McIntyre (NC-7)
Charlie Melancon (LA-3)
Mike Michaud (ME-2)
Walt Minnick (ID-1)
Harry Mitchell (AZ-5)
Dennis Moore (KS-3)
Patrick Murphy (PA-8 )
Scott Murphy (NY-20)
Glenn Nye (VA-2)
Collin Peterson (MN-7)
Earl Pomeroy (ND-AL)
Mike Ross (AR-4)
John Salazar (CO-3)
Loretta Sanchez (CA-47)
Adam Schiff (CA-29)
Kurt Schrader (OR-5)
David Scott (GA-13)
Heath Shuler (NC-11)
Zack Space (OH-18 )
John Tanner (TN-8 )
Gene Taylor (MS-4)
Mike Thompson (CA-1)
Charlie Wilson (OH-6)

Now, a graphical depiction of where they stand for reelection compared to their current bloc on the map per RCP:

2010 A Blue Dog Extinction?

A Demplosion wipes out all but 6 “safe” blue dogs per RCP, but I think Cuellar in Texas' 28th is vulnerable, as Democrats in the neighboring districts 23, 25, and 15 have become.

In even the worst scenario, the “lucky 5” are:
Schift in CA-29
David Scott in GA-13
Harman in CA-36
Baca in CA-43
Thompson in CA-1

The Democrats loved mocking President Bush with his 30+ member "coalition of the willing." How effective does a coalition of four Californians and some guy in Atlanta sound?
Better yet...if you live in these 5 districts, care to remind them it's "too late to loose the weight they used to need to throw around?"

and now some Roger Waters. This tune reaaaally sounds like the path all of these members have taken. Enjoy and eeyore/boast below:
