More fossils in Congress

The average age of top Democratic leadership in the US House of Representatives is 72.5. Chucky Schumer, 62, and Harry Reid, 72, want the Senate to match the House. They are facing the expected retirement of

Frank Lautenberg, 88

Jay Rockefeller, 75

Tom Harkin, 73

and Tim Johnson 65

Fossil Carl Levin of Michigan, age 78, is expected to run for reelection.

Lautenberg would be expected to be replaced by another Democrat. But the other three are vulnerable - average age 71. They might be replaced by younger Republicans.

Keep your fossils, Chucky. They get more out of touch with voters every year, but that makes them easier for Harry to control.
