    •  Well, for one thing ... (6+ / 0-)

      he's 76 years old.  For another thing, maybe he's just tired.  He would be 83 in another 6 years (after 2012), and he's the sort of guy who goes to work every day.  Maybe he just has other things he wants to do.  In fact, the Journal Sentinel is reporting that he plans to focus his energy on the Milwaukee Bucks, which have languished while he did the Senate thing.  He bought the team in the first place in order to save the franchise for the city, which is another one of his unsung benevolent acts.  His plan now is to salvage the team for sale and to keep it in Milwaukee.  He's just an all around good guy.
