More Dems Might flee Senate

I posted Thursday that New York Senator Chuck "Chuckie" Schumer might resign his seat to run for governor in 2006. Well, the New York Times reports that Democrat SenatorsChris Doddand Jon Corzine might also cut and run for the State Houses in Hartford and Trenton respectively.

Why? There is said to be a mood of powerless soaking through Senate Democrats, what with their minority status further stamped and their leader dumped by South Dakotans. These men all wish to be powerful, and governors are executives. (None are "Red State material," thus probably shouldn't be considered for a run at the Presidency in four years.)
