Ben Nelson is a right-leaning Democrat (sometimes full on right wing). As POLITICO reports today, he will not be seeking re-election to the Senate.
Which makes holding the seat very difficult. It will be difficult to find a Dem in Nebraska who can run for the seat and Nebraska is also very ticked off about ObamaCare (smart people must live in Nebraska, we should all be ticked off by ObamaCare).
So it makes it all the harder for Dems to hold onto the Senate.
That's not a "OH MY GOSH POOR DEMS!"
I don't give a f- what happens to them right now. They are, as a group, a sorry bunch of jerks. Barack is a huge disappointment but so are Senate Dems.
Harry Reid needs to be put out to pasture and a new Senate Majority Leader needs to be found. Hint, it ain't Cry Baby Dickie Durbin.
