Huff Po is reporting that Tom Harkin has announced he will not seek re-election in 2014.
His decision certainly is understandable, as he'd be over 80 at the conclusion of another term if he served one. He felt is was someone else's turn. It's too bad Senator McCrankypants here doesn't share Harkin's perspective.
At the same time, it's a shame. Harkin is one of the best we have in the Sentate. Doubtful his replacement will fill those shoes.
