The Detroit News has an interesting piece that looks at what may happen if longtime Michigan Senator Carl Levin, a Democrat, would retire before his 2014 re-election. Yes, he would win if he ran.
Oh no, I say, because that would be one nasty and non-stop campaign to replace him with both Republicans and Democrats stumbling over one another for what usually is a lifetime job once elected.
For that reason alone, I hope Levin runs for re-election and wins, giving us at least one area where we're not bombarded with duplicate mailers, non-stop phone call harassment, and obnoxious tv commercials.
Come Mr. Levin, you'll be 80 in two years. You can do it.
