Sen. Barbara Mikulski to Resign Too?

The earth hasn't stopped reeling from Evan Bayh's knife in the Democrats' back, or the stunning news of Senator Evan Bayh's resignation. Yet already there are rumors of another resignation. Reportedly, Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski will resign within days. If true, the heavily male-dominated Congress will become even more so, and the US will fall even farther behind. If true, Mikulski will become the 6th Democratic senator to jump ship.

If New York doesn't work out for Harold Ford, maybe he can move to Maryland or Indiana. Or one of these states:

"Evan Bayh is the fifth Democratic Senator not seeking re-election. He joins Sens. Chris Dodd (Conn.), Byron Dorgan (N.D.), Ted Kaufman (Del.) and Roland Burris (Ill.) on the sidelines."
