House committee chair decides to retire instead of enduring the brutal beating the voters were going to give him.

And the rats leave the ship.

When a slew of Republicans in the House announced their retirements in 2006, people took it as a leading indicator of a coming realignment for George Bush’s second midterms.  Already we have seen three Democrats announce retirements in 2009, well ahead of the 2010 midterms, including Brian Baird (D-WA), who is only 53 years old.  Now Bart Gordon (D-TN), who will be only 61 years old next month, has also decided to retire despite chairing a major House committee.
