  •  Great news for Senator Johnson and his family (5+ / 0-)

    and, of course, the Democratic party, South Dakota and country. I hope he continues to make steady progress and is back in the senate fairly soon.

    At the same time, Pajamas Pete Domenici appears to have gotten himself into some very hot water over his apparent attempt to influence and intimidate a US Attorney and then get him fired for partisan political reasons. If this doesn't lead to his being outset from the senate or resigning I'd be quite surprised. And when that happens, we no longer have a Lieberman problem as Richardson will just appoint a Democrat to replace Domenici (or NM voters will elect a Democrat if that's how things work there--no way do they elect a Republican).

    Get well soon Senator Johnson!

      maybe two Udalls will run for the Senate in 2008.

        Or, I suppose, like the Levins, Sanchezes and Martinezes. (Am I missing anyone?)

        Who ever said Dems aren't family people?
