Can you say Strom Thurmond?

Top Democrats Try to Quash Rumors of Plan to Sideline West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd
Tuesday, December 18, 2007

WASHINGTON — Top Democrats are trying to put to rest rumors about a plan to sideline one of the Senate's most venerable — and frail — members, Robert Byrd.

Byrd, D-W.Va., is 90 and needs assistance to move around the Senate, and his signature oratory style has slowed significantly in recent years. He also is the chairman of one of the most powerful Senate panels, the Appropriations Committee.

IMHO, Robert Byrd should have stepped down years ago and especially after his outing as a white sheet ...
One excellent reason for real term limits...
