Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

2008 Senate Picture

Hi Everyone,

CNN is reporting that two term Colorado Republican, Wayne Allard, has decided to make good on his pledge only to serve two terms. He won his past two elections by narrow margins and his seat was already high on the Democrats' list of pick up targets. The seat will be open in 2008. And the way Bush is behaving, the war in Iraq will still be an issue. Colorado is also a swing state.

Of the Senate seats that are subject to election in 2008, 21 are currently held by Republicans and 12 are held by Democrats.

Allard must be backing out because he knows that if he had run in 2006, he would have lost, and is unwilling to bank on 2008. Also, he is probably not getting funds for that reason. Wow, cool beans for the Dems.

Susan Collins made the same pledge. Think she's going to keep it? It doesn't look like it :

October 12, 2006 -- "I've found that I really underestimated the importance of seniority and how much difference it makes when you are a more senior member," Collins said of her decision. "At the time, I thought that 12 years, that two terms, would be enough. This was at the height of what I would call the frenzy over term limits."
