Senatorial Geezers

80 year old Republican Senator John Warner of Virginia said Friday he will not seek a sixth term in 2008. Warner said he still feels spry enough for the "rigors" of the Senate, but he did not want to push it for another six years.

Ever wonder why so many politicians work well beyond retirement norms? Are they workaholics or are those jobs just easy ... or is it something a bit darker? How many of our 100 senators do you think are over 80? Over 65? You might be surprised.

This list says that 40 percent of these folks are retirement eligible (i.e. 65 or older) yet continue to "work". Ah, the sweet life in our nation's capitol must be good for these old folks J
