Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., to retire? 

All the wrangling over the health care may have taken its toll on Bart Stupak:

The Democrat best known this year as the Democrat who delivered the winning margin of votes for the president’s health-care reform bill is said to be simply exhausted. The criticism he received — first from the left, and then from the right — has worn him and his family out. And if he had to make the decision now, he’d probably NOT run. As of this writing, a bunch of senior Democrats (many of the same ones who twisted his arm on the health care vote) are trying to talk him into running.

Money has been flooding into the coffers of Stupak’s opponent ever since he flip-flopped on abortion funding. If Stupak doesn’t run, his district is a likely GOP pickup.
