Warner Decides Not to Seek Sixth Term

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Republican Sen. John Warner of Virginia, one of the most authoritative voices in Congress on the military and a key figure in the debate over Iraq, said Friday he will not seek a sixth term in 2008.

Warner, 80, was elected in 1978, after the dashing former Navy secretary campaigned alongside his wife at the time, Elizabeth Taylor.

Warner is leaving what would have been a safe seat for the Republicans if he had chosen to run again. His departure gives Democrats a better chance to protect or even expand their one-seat majority in the Senate.

Here's one for you- If someone in the senate is that old and has been in long enough to collect a pension, is he getting paid his wage as senator AND getting his gold plate pension as well, or is it one or the other?

What a waste of our money on these whores/clowns, just so they can fuck us daily!
