    Change in the 112th Congress - Yahoo! News

    Pretty interesting so many [(7) - 13.7%] Democrat Senators want to leave during a time of "making history" to the great times that Obama is leading us to ...

    That's the real truth. Rather than use their war chest and still lose, might as well just move the money around until it lands in their own bank account.

    From Wikipedia:

    Elections to the United States Senate
    are to be held on November 6, 2012, with 33 of the 100 seats in the Senate being contested in regular elections whose winners will serve six-year terms from January 3, 2013 until January 3, 2019. Additionally, special elections may be held to fill vacancies that occur during the 112th United States Congress. Currently, Democrats are expected to have 23 seats up for election, including 2 independents who caucus with the Democrats, while Republicans are expected to have only 10 seats up for election.

    So 33% of those up for relecection., 7 out of 21 are "retiring". NICE!
