  •  leahy will die in office (0+ / 0-)

    Leahey is one of those senators for life, he will probably die in office. I lived in Vermont when he was elected years ago. I remember Vermont always voted republican but they were progressive republicans, new England types.
    They no longer exist in the GOP except maybe Olympia Snowe.I don`t know much about Douglas but I assume he must be pretty moderate to be elected in Vermont.

    •  god I hope not. (0+ / 0-)

      I love Pat Leahy but I really hope that he doesn't stay on until he dies.  In fact, I think one more term would be just fine.  Yes, we'd lose seniority in the Senate but 40+ years is long enough.

      As for Douglas, in many states he'd be considered a moderate dem, but he's still a terrible gov.  

      two cheers for democracy
