Michael Barone notes that we’re down to two:
Also retiring and not running for re-election is Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa. Senator Max Baucus of Montana will resign if, as expected, he is confirmed as ambassador to China. Both were first elected to the House in 1974 and were later elected to the Senate.
These four are just about the last members serving in Congress of the 75 Democrats first elected to the House in the Watergate year of 1974.
…and good riddance to bad rubbish. That was the Congress (specifically: those were the Congressional Democrats) who decided to make the USA break its promise, and thus condemned several million people in South Vietnam to a life of slavery and want. In a just world, they would have been long since hounded from office; alas, I have to settle for watching them settle into the indifferent embraces of entropy. Admittedly, that has its compensations…
