Crystal Ball Prediction: Domenici (R- NM) Likely To Retire

Think about it.

Domenici has been in the senate since 1972. That's six full terms.

John Warner's doing it.

Chuck Hagel's doing it.

Larry Craig is toast.

Ted Stevens is in a heap of trouble.

And now, there's this little gem...

Hopes of regaining Senate dim for GOP

The 2008 campaign appears increasingly unpleasant for Republicans a year after unexpected defeats cost them control. Among the factors are GOP retirements in tossup states, voters' distress about the Iraq war and a handful of scandals.


Ethics have hurt the GOP's image -- sex-related scandals involving Sens. Larry Craig of Idaho and David Vitter of Louisiana, and a federal raid of Sen. Ted Stevens' Alaska home in a bribery investigation. Also, the Senate ethics committee is looking into claims that Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., tried to pressure a federal prosecutor in an election probe of Democrats.

What would you do at Domenici's age?

Suffer the humiliation of a senate ethics probe so late in your career or choose to spend more time with the family?

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
