Oh no, the worst Democrat in the Senate is leaving

The man who never met a Republican talking-point he didn't adopt, from unemployment assistance to killing the public option is retiring.
Democrats on Tuesday lamented Sen. Ben Nelson's decision to retire rather than seek a third term in Nebraska, fearing the move sets up Republicans for an easy and crucial victory in their effort to reclaim control of the chamber next year.
And somehow he jeopardizes the Democrats ability to keep the Senate...and do nothing at all with it. Oh no. If only there was a really white douchebag knight on a white steeds flaming bag of horse manure to keep the world safe for inanity?

Many owe Nelson much. Time for him to mine their munificence.

Democrats are "lamenting"? That's being polite.

Thanks Ben, for all you've done to your party and country. You could have at least announced this a year ago so your party and state could prepare for an election.

And Kerry is not the answer. If he wins he'll be 70 when he takes office. He will never get seniority for his state or his party. You need a candidate in his late 40's.
