Wow. What does that tell you? Two things: 1) Dodd was scared of Schiff. 2) Dodd had a pretty good idea of how to screw Schiff (and every liberty-loving American). Now Schiff is no longer running against an increasingly unpopular Banking Committee chairman who unwittingly helped engineer the worst bubble/crash since the Great Depression. He's running against a popular Democratic attorney in a heavily Democratic state (if what I hear is true).

It's not about political gain or personal glory with these folks, is it? It's about Them vs. Us. Them's the power elite in congress, banks, and law firms, and Us'ns is the po' folk who din no inna bettuh.

Regardless of party, Dorgan is a very popular senator in North Dakota, evidently something Dodd does not share in his state.  Likely, ND will have a Senator Hoeven (R) soon.

 Dorgan and Dodd were both popular until the American people FINALLY realized that they were both out of touch partisan hacks that have been In Congress WAY TOO LONG.......   Power corrupts,and this Is the exact reason that the DEMS are In deep trouble In 2010. To be fair,neither party Is worthy of representing AMERICAN CITIZENS,as they have both demonstrated their arrogance In subverting THE PEOPLES WILL. Can you believe the DEMS are going to shove this health care bill down our throats no matter what WE think?  Hows that for "Change you can believe In" ?    TS

This only tells us that Dodd does not want to be Senator anymore or thinks he cannot be re-elected. All the rest is just speculation.

@leohaas - That is my take exactly

 

I may not agree with everything Dodd did, but I sure do not like the idea of someone else taking his place and taking a second look at reinstating Glass-Steagall...

I disagree. By subverting the people's will, both parties have proved themselves exactly what American citizens deserve. We envied those richer than ourselves, so we voted for higher taxes and welfare. We resented those smarter than ourselves, so we imposed public idiotizing under the misnomer "public education." And we are basically fat and lazy embarrassments to our forebears (if they have the misfortune of being able to see what we've become), just like the descendants of every other great people of history.
