    When I submitted the story I submitted the whole story. Only later did his reasons for retiring come out.

    Virginia Democratic Sen. Webb to Retire from Senate After One Term
    By Trish Turner
    Created 2011-02-09 11:50
    First-term Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia will retire when his term ends next year.

    Kyle is not retiring in the middle of his term. His term expires as a Senator in 2 years.


    I did not see the other thread but cheap shots are cheap shots. Wrong for both sides.

    It would be nice if folks would talk about policy and issue differences instead of throwing around baseless accusations and lies.

    It makes both sides look petty and childish.

    I had occasion to call Senator Kyl's DC office many years back as I felt he was the only Senator to have the Estate Tax issue correct. Whomever I talked to was polite & even though I introduced myself as someone from Out of State was not interested in ending the conversation. He reminds me a lot of Goldwater!!!
